World Series: JT Realmuto Learned Success From his Wrestling Family
This past weekend, the Detroit Tigers had to watch the world’s greatest team beat them in Game 7 of the World Series, leaving them as the only team in baseball to have lost three out of four World Series games.
For some reason, after the world’s greatest team had eliminated the Tigers for the third time, a few people in America said they wished they were back in Detroit for Game 7. It’s crazy that this team got to play without Mike Trout and Victor Martinez.
The Tigers lost their second game, meaning they had to win the title-deciding game and win it by defeating the Dodgers in the World Series.
There’s no way a team with Miguel Cabrera, J.D. Martinez, and Anibal Sanchez would lose two straight games to the best team in baseball, but hey, at least this team got to fight back and win the last game.
That was my favorite moment of that World Series game, because this team had to win and lose a championship to get me back in Detroit.
I’m not sure why, but watching my beloved Tigers win that World Series made me want to say, “F*ck it” and get a ride back home to Detroit.
It was clear by the end of that World Series that they didn’t want to leave Detroit.
The city of Detroit got the Tigers at the perfect time, so I’m glad they made a change. I don’t know if the move will be permanent, but I’m glad they got a chance to rebuild.
Tiger’s first World Series victory was in 1967, so they got a long head start. They might have a shot in the future to get an even longer head start, but it looked like it was about to end.
The Tigers didn’t finish off the Red Sox in the World Series last year, but the team did get some of the best players from the Red Sox in Trout, Martinez, and Sanchez.
