It took a long time for the Houston native to make it to the big leagues. It wasn't until Saccomanno appeared with Houston at the age of 28 that the infielder could finally breathe the rarified air of the major leagues. It didn't last long - just 21 days and 10 games - before it was back to the minors the following year.

He had one shining moment, however. He got to homer in his very first plate appearance in the majors.
