This isn’t something you see every day. In fact, it’s something we can legitimately say we have not seen in over a decade.

Miami Marlins catcher Wilkin Castillo just got the call from the minors after spending the past decade-plus on buses.

In his first MLB game since June of 2009, Castillo nailed a double off Philadelphia Phillies reliever Adam Morgan. Not only that, it gave the Marlins the lead.

This represented Castillo’s first MLB hit in 3,654 days.

That’s an absolutely amazing stat. And good for the dude. He’s defined what it means to be a hard worker.

He had spent the past decade playing for nearly 20 minor league clubs since last appearing in the majors as a member of the Reds late last decade.

These two RBI represented the same number as Castillo’s first stint in the bigs.
