Myers: Debut overall "very awesome"



Though OF Wil Myers was 0-for-4 in his Tuesday afternoon big-league debut, he still enjoyed the overall experience.

"It was very awesome,'' he said. "I tried to soak it in a little bit. A very cool experience. It was everything I thought it would be.''

Myers didn't have much impact on the game, catching one fly ball and having a slight bit of trouble picking up the ball on Shane Victorino's triple.

He said the Fenway fans were "loud" but didn't get on him too bad.

Myers also enjoyed the opportunity to share his moment with nearly 20 friends and relatives, including his parents, brother, one set of grandparents, girlfriend and best friend.

Myers also said he was eager for the opportunity to play a second game and finish his first day with more to show for it.
