"Never felt more joy than this moment," he said in an Instagram post.Β 

Archer was raised by his grandmother and step-grandfather, who adopted him when he was two years old. In 2018, he penned a letter about race where he ended by telling his parents he loved them.

After eight years in the majors, he got a chance to pay them back in a big way.

The Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher is set to make $9 million in 2020, giving him plenty of disposable income for some cars and more.
