RENO, Nev. – Former Reno Aces infielder Buddy Kennedy had his contract selected by the Arizona Diamondbacks today and “Received the call to the Majors” for the first time in his professional career.

The Reno Aces staff was able to capture the moment when manager Gil Velazquez shared the news to Kennedy in front of his teammates after Wednesday’s game. The video content of this special moment will be airing across the Arizona Diamondbacks’ social media channels and Bally’s Arizona.

The Millville, New Jersey native was on the Aces’ Opening Day roster and played in 54 games with the club. During that time, hit .296 (58-for-196) with 8 doubles, 3 triples, and 4 home runs to go along with 24 RBI and 37 runs scored.

He joins Alek Thomas and Tyler Holton, who also made their MLB debuts this season with the Arizona Diamondbacks.
