Seth Brown is getting the chance to make one his dreams come true. He's playing in the big leagues.

Since he was a kid, Brown dreamed of stepping onto the field as a Major League ballplayer and now he'll get a chance to live it.

He's played most of the year on the Oakland Athletics AAA affiliate, the Las Vegas Aviators. Sunday, the Aviators' manager Fran Riordan gave Brown the news during batting practice before their game in Tacoma, according to Brown.

Brown said in a phone interview with KDRV that he got very emotional after Riordan told him and then called his father. Brown said "it's been a dream for me and my father" for Seth to play at the major league level.

Brown will start in left field for the A's in their game against the Kansas City Royals on Monday at 5:15 pm.
