What a great day for Major League Baseball and East Texas.

One of our own is getting the call tonight as Hudson's own Brandon Belt is set to be the San Francisco Giants starting first baseman tonight as they travel to take on the Los Angeles Dodgers.  

Belt  was a standout player for the Hornets and spent a couple of years with the Longhorns before being drafted by the Giants and then had a meteoric rise through the farm system.

When told by his manager that he had made the Majors, Belt couldn't contain his emotions.

Sorry...couldn't resist having a little fun with the soundbite.

Get the whole story from the San Francisco Chronicle.
