They just happened to be interviewing his dad when he got not just his first big league hit, but also his first big league home run.
The family was being interviewed about the 23-year-old's debut while he was up to bat when Diaz connected off Mets pitcher Jacob deGrom in the sixth inning.
Composing himself, Raul Diaz addressed the Marlins fans watching at home.
In fact, my father, brother and I just brought my little Carter to his first ever Major League Baseball game about 10 days ago (photo above).
'To the audience, I just want to apologize, ' he said, adding, 'we're very thankful and blessed'. He even mentions the Cy Young win for deGrom.
The Mets beat the Marlins 6-2 to reach.500 for the first time since late May.
