See what Andrew Salciunas found in The Audio Vault today! Every day Andrew dives deep into the Vault to pull out audio relevant to the day to play for Anthony Gargano. And after we saw the much-anticipated debut of Trea Turner yesterday, Andrew dedicated today’s Vault to other great debuts in Philadelphia sports history. The times we couldn’t wait to see someone play, and it more than lived up to the hype. He pulled 7 great debuts, plus what Trea Turner did yesterday.
Trea Turner’s debut did not go quite as planned sadly. Phillies coughed up a 5-0 lead in the 4th inning. 9 total runs crossed the plate for the Rangers that inning. 5 courtesy of Aaron Nola. The Phillies were never able to claw back and ended up losing on Opening Day. But for Trea Turner it went somewhat well. He was responsible for 1 of the 7 runs the Phillies scored when his triple drove Brandon Marsh in.

Nothing earth-shattering. But enough to get us excited about what Trea Turner can do in the next 161 games. Phillies may have lost, but Trea at least looked the part in his first game.
But there are 7 great debuts that Andrew found in the Vault to play for us today. The times when guys came in right away, and made a splash.
