It’s a moment the Orioles, fans and Rutschman have all been waiting for. When the rookie came to the dugout, veteran Trey Mancini was there to put the Orioles home run chain around his neck.

The team did recover the baseball, so Rutschman will be able to take the keepsake with him back to Baltimore.
