Just how young is Elvis Luciano, baseball’s first 21st-century player?
Michael Clair, Cut4
While this is not Brewers related, it’s an interesting note. Elvis Luciano is the first player born in 2000 or later to pitch in the majors. There’s also a quiz included to see how well you remember your dates. (As a technicality, he’s not the first player born in the 21st century to play in the majors, since that would be a person born in 2001 or later.)
