Dylan Dodd, alum and former SEMO pitcher, is set to make his major league baseball debut Tuesday, April 4 against the St. Louis Cardinals at Busch Stadium.

Dodd was drafted in the third round of the 2021 draft for the Atlanta Braves, and he was selected as the 96th overall pick.

According to Commercial-News, Dodd explained it was a surreal moment finding out he would be facing his home state team.

The three game series showcasing the Atlanta Braves against the St. Louis Cardinals is set to begin Monday, which will be the first of two meetings between the teams before they face again in August.
