On Sunday April 11, the Oakland Athletics played the Los Angeles Angels, but newbie Adam Rosales didn’t expect that his first homerun would actually drive four runs with his new team, helping the Oakland Athletics to win the game 9-4 over the Angels.

Adam impressed the A’s since he was with Cincinnati, they knew what they needed and knew exactly from where to look for it. They changed their infielder Aaron Miles for Adam Rosales and they haven’t regretted at all. He seems to knew exactly what his new team wanted from him, his versatility is outstanding. Did you know he actually played four outfield positions? It is not very common to find this kind of infielder anymore; which is why the A’s are very comfortable with him.

"I’ve just kind of always listened to what the coaches said, One thing that was always constant was work hard, play hard, be smart. You should always enjoy the game." Said Adam.
