Sportsman of the Week Ending 6/4/2023
In an extremely busy season for sports, we turn to Major League Baseball for the first time this season (as the NBA and NHL had a bit of a lull between Conference and League Finals). One of the big surprise teams in 2023 has been the Texas Rangers. After making some aggressive moves in the offseason to offset two seasons with a combined 196 losses they are starting to look like the team to beat in the American League West. One of the big moves they made was to add Corey Seager prior to 2022. That move is paying Dividends. After an early season injury in 2023, Seager hit his stride the last week. In six games, Seager went 11/27 with 2 HR, 3 2B, and 10 RBI. And there was an 0-5 in the middle of it with nada (that his team still scored 10 runs and won). Overall the Rangers were 5-1 and extended their American League West lead over the World Champion Houston Astros who only went 4-3. It may be a race deep into September in the Lone Star State and former World Series MVP Corey Seager has the experience to carry his team and is the Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
