Sportsman of the Week Ending 10/24/2021
What a week of baseball playoffs, culminating in two very successful franchises punching their ticket to the 2021 World Series. The Houston Astros and Atlanta Braves. Both of them slayed tough Wild Card competition who were red hot, but it's a Braves slugger that was the big difference. OF Eddie Rosario made big hit after big hit to guide the Braves past the Los Angeles Dodgers to advance them to their first World Series this millennium (okay 22 years). Rosario bludgeoned the Dodgers in the NLCS at a 14-25 clip, 3 HR, 9 RBI, and threw in a double and a triple. His hits were clutch, including a walk off single in Game 2, 2 HR in Game 4, then a momentum changing 3-run HR in the decisive Game 6 to stand up a 4-2 win. Whenever clutch was needed, Rosario answered. And on to the World Series for our Sportsman of the Week!
