The Pittsburgh Pirates have sent 33-year-old minor leaguer Drew Maggi back to Double-A baseball after calling him up.

Maggi, who had been called up previously but didn’t play, was brought to the majors once again last week.

The infielder made his MLB debut on April 26 against the Dodgers and recorded his first career hit on Saturday

Maggi, who spent 13 seasons in the minors and appeared in 1,155 games, will rejoin the Pirates' Double-A team in Altoona.

When a game was postponed due to rain on Friday, the Pirates called up former Yankee outfielder Miguel Andujar and optioned Maggi to the minor leagues.

According to USA Today, Maggi was the team's 27th player when the Pirates played two games on Saturday.

Maggi's first major league hit came on Saturday night in Washington. The infielder hit an RBI single to center field as the Pirates held a 12-0 lead on the Nationals in the top of the seventh inning.

His name was chanted by fans as he walked back into the dugout to continue the life he knows - the grind of baseball.

It doesn't matter if Drew Maggi never again takes the field in a Major League Baseball game; for a short period of time in late April, he captivated a city, a fan base, and a whole sport.
