When a baseball player finally gets the dream call that he’s made it to the show, it’s always a huge deal. There isn’t one way to make it to the majors, everyone has a different journey and some require more steps than others. 27-year-old Brock Stassi has been bouncing around the minors for years hoping one day he would finally get a spot on a MLB roster. That day came on Thursday when he found out he had made the Phillies’ Opening Day squad and his reaction was endearing.
Stassi was a 33rd round draft pick in the 2011 MLB Draft. He was taken No. 1,021 by the Phillies out of the University of Nevada-Reno. Six years in the minors and spending the offseason as a substitute teacher to making the Phillies’ 25-man roster would definitely bring a grown man to tears.

Stassi very emotional, choking back tears and calling it "a dream come true." pic.twitter.com/jcUb5H9UYZ
