Sports Spectrum Editor on World Series Game One Star Juan Soto
It’s no wonder that SportsSpectrum.com jumped on the opportunity to feature the Washington National’s Juan Soto the day after Game 1 of the World Series.
He’s a 20-year-old from the Dominican Republic, serving as the Washington Nationals’ left fielder and clean-up hitter. He hit .282 in 150 games this season, his second in the majors, collecting 34 home runs and 110 RBIs — all really good numbers. And his first appearance in the World Series was one for the ages — 3-for-4 hitting, one home run, one double, three RBIs. All three of his runs were driven in off Houston Astros pitcher Gerrit Cole, widely considered to be the best pitcher in baseball. – Jon Ackerman, Sports Spectrum managing editor reporting, Rising star Juan Soto praises God while leading Washington Nationals in World Series

Managing editor Jon Ackerman does a great job in his story on Soto:
When the teams play in Washington for Game 3 — the first World Series game ever at Nationals Park — they’ll do so as Soto turns 21. That’s one of the best birthday presents a young ballplayer could ask for — and apparently something Soto’s father told him would happen years ago. “My dad told me when I was 10 years old, he told me, ‘You’re going to play baseball on your birthday. You’re going to play in the World Series,’” Soto told NBC Sports Washington.
