Dilson was just 20 years &179 days at the time of his debut becoming the youngest Mets player to debut since Ruben Tejada (20 years, 162 days) and Jenrry Mejia (20 years, 178 days) on April 7, 2010.

Naturally, he is a hero to many baseball mad youngsters back in Colombia.

Huge congratulations to Dilson on his amazing achievements and to his team-mates for clinching the title in Los Angeles!
