Sportsman of the Week Ending 10/10/2021
The Major League Baseball postseason hit full throttle this week and big teams and big names took center stage. A surprise surging team was the Boston Red Sox. On a wild final Sunday of the regular season, they Red Sox stage a huge comeback to avoid having a one-game playoff against the Toronto Blue Jays. Bought them a one game blood bath against the Yankees. And a win. Turn the page to the ALCS against the Tampa Bay Rays and they stormed to a 3-1 series win in the ALDS. The star? Enrique 'Kike" Hernandez. Overall the Sox went 4-1 against the two best teams in the AL East. Hernandez was 10-18, 3 doubles, 2 HR, 5 runs, 6 RBI in the 4 wins. Perhaps his most dramatic at bat was a series walk off against the top seeded Rays on a Sacrifice Fly. He was nothing short of unstoppable in taking the Red Sox to their second ALCS in four years. He has played in 3 of the last 4 World Series, winning a title last year. He may make it 4 out of 5. Our Sportsman of the Week!
