Baseball Hero’s Surprisingly Basic Challenge

March 29, 2012 by staff 

Baseball Hero’s Surprisingly Basic Challenge, David Freese has returned to earth after his heavenly 2011 postseason and otherworldly aftermath: the appearances on “The Tonight Show” and “Ellen,” presenting a Country Music Award with Erin Andrews, having a Six Flags ride named after him, being handed the keys to the city of St. Louis.

At ground level is the down-and-dirty fact that he has never played a full major-league season, that not since 2008 in the minors has he been free from injury for a sustained period.

Freese was MVP of the 2011 World Series and the National League Championship Series, and he revels in it still. Why shouldn’t he? Every player dreams of leading his team to a title and performing heroically on the biggest stage. Yet he also knows he has a lot to prove. He’s done what nobody else has, but every regular on every team has done something he hasn’t.

Yes, David Freese has returned to earth, even if he’s spending spring in a town named after a planet 390,682,810 miles away. That Corvette he got for being World Series MVP? His dad is driving it around suburban St. Louis.
