2018-04-18T16:55:21+00:00 Athlete, Baseball, General Interest, Professional|

The Houston Astros spent the 2009-2013 seasons in the cellar of the American League. Somewhat affectionately known as the “LASTros” during this period, the suffering eventually led to something sweet for the Houston baseball team.

George Springer, the 11th pick in the 2011 MLB Draft made his Major League debut for the Astros in 2014.

Aaron Judge: Flurry of Improvement

2018-04-18T16:53:43+00:00 Athlete, Baseball, General Interest, Professional|

He’s become the face of the Yankees after just one season. The power hitting, wide smiling Aaron Judge took the baseball world by storm last season, crushing home runs and leading the Yankees to the American League Championship Series, where they lost to the eventual World Series champs, the Houston Astros.

It wasn’t always a sure thing that Judge would figure it out though. Heading into Spring training in 2017, he was in a close competition with Aaron Hicks for the Yankees starting right fielder job– after an up and down first […]
