“It’s special, definitely,” Plawecki said. “Getting your first major league home run, it’s a big deal.”

Plawecki, 24, is batting .286 with an OBP of .333 in his first four games since being promoted. Manager Terry Collins has stated Plawecki will receive the majority of the playing time in the absence of the injured Travis d'Arnaud.
“If you had told me last week I’d be here catching Matt Harvey at Yankee Stadium, I would have said you were lying.” Plawecki said.
Harvey, who dominated the Yankees for 8 2/3 innings, declared Plawecki as the star of the game.
“I think he’s obviously the star of the game with the home run and the RBIs that he had. As far as catching, he did an absolutely tremendous job.” said Harvey.
