Stephen Cardullo kept working hard and never lost sight of his dream, no matter how improbable.
On Friday, the dream became reality.
Cardullo, 28, became the latest Albuquerque Isotope to be called up to the Colorado Rockies. Though he’s played primarily in the outfield this summer, he was tabbed for a start at first base and batted second in the Rockies’ lineup for his Major League Baseball debut at Washington.
On Monday, he collected his first hit and first run as a major leaguer, helping the Rockies beat the Dodgers.
