Evan Gattis: First Hit in the Majors Was a Home Run, and it Came While His Mom and Dad Were Being Interviewed on TV

Evan Gattis of the Atlanta Braves had an interesting life before arriving at Spring Training in 2012 – he was a lift operator, worked at a pizza joint, and as a janitor, and also spent time in rehab.
