Amazing, it was.

Carlos Beltrán, outfielder for the St. Louis Cardinals, played in his first World Series game Wednesday night. He, and his wife, tweeted their excitement ahead of the game.

Boston here we go! @cbeltran3

Wonderful.

Neat moment is putting it mildly. And during the game itself, Beltrán  had an incredible moment. Check out his remarkable catch, which robbed the Red Sox’s David Ortiz of a grand slam:

Ha! When you’ve been meme’d, that says something!

Beltrán was injured during that incredible catch and, sadly, had to leave his very first World Series game in the 2nd inning.

Fans rightly praised him and are hoping for a speedy recovery.

The latest news on his injury indicated no break, thankfully:

Will he be back?

Indeed. Game two is Thursday at 8:00 p.m. ET.
