Jacoby EllsburyFormer Commodore and Red Sox prospect Jacoby Ellsbury got his first major league baseball hit tonight. Ellsbury hit a routine ground ball to Michael Young off of Robinson Tejada, and impressively beat it out at 1st. Red Sox fans continue to be amazed by Ellsbury's speed, and he could end up being the new homegrown fan favorite in Boston. Ellsbury had a .376 OBP in 2004 on the Cape. He had nearly a hit per game with 27 hits in 28 games played.
