He was pulled from the game before throwing a pitch, still was introduced so it counted as a game and he never made it back to the majors. He was just 21 at the time. That is as close as you can get to your dream without actually reaching it.

Dodgers had John Lindsey in 2010 who played 16 seasons in the minors before getting called up. Was finally used as a pinch hitter on Sept 8 but when the opposing manager switched pitchers he was taken out too. Luckily for him he got to play again but that was some first game for him after waiting so long
