Gary Sanchez didn’t win the American League Rookie of the Year award (Tigers righty Michael Fulmer did), but he already took home a far more prestigious honor due to his amazing debut in 2016: He is undoubtedly the new face of the New York Yankees.
Just 55 games into his major league career, Sanchez Authentic Darron Lee Jersey is the supermoon in the Yankees’ universe.
The slow parade of past Yankees greats is nearing its conclusion as CC Sabathia’s contract dwindles away at the end of 2017.
Sabathia, if he is not retained, will follow Mariano Rivera, Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez and Mark Teixeira as the last big-name vestiges from the Yankees’ latest title in 2009. (Brett Gardner is still around for now, but he doesn’t rank in the stratosphere of Authentic David Harris Jersey the above-mentioned stars.)
Seager respects and thirsts for input from his parents, Jeff and Jody. And, of course, he hits up brother Kyle for tricks of the trade. Kyle Seager just completed his sixth major league season, batting a solid .278 for the Seattle Mariners, collecting 30 home runs and 99 RBIs in the process.
Combined with Corey’s .308 batting average, 26 home runs and 72 RBIs, the Seager boys had one of the most productive seasons for a brother duo in baseball history.
“I’ve kind of always asked Kyle for advice at every step; he’s already gone through it, whether it was college, professional to the big leagues,” Corey Seager said. “Every level, he’s been there and helped me out. I talked to my middle brother a bunch, too, because we were in the same levels together. We were doing it at the same time. I would bounce ideas off him.
“And obviously your parents are always going to be there for you. So it is nice to have people at the same step, and a step above you, to be able to kind of ask ideas, bounce stuff off them and eventually turn them into your own stuff.”
Then there was the advice and tutelage from Dodgers coaches and teammates, such as veteran Chase Utley, whose every word was devoured by the first-year player.
“That’s where Chase came in huge for me this year,” Seager said. “It’s been those guys you could bounce ideas off of and help guide you through it, because they have already gone through it.”
