I am introducing the Houston Astros' 25-year-old rookie Jeremy Pena.
He made his MLB debut this April as a regular shortstop for Houston. Pena contributed to winning Houston's World Series in both battings and fielding this postseason.
The 25-year-old player hit a game-deciding solo home run to end an 18-inning game against the Seattle Mariners in the American League Division Series. The right-handed hitter, who hit .353 with two homers and four RBI, helped the Astros sweep the New York Yankees in the American League Championship Series(ALCS).
The young shortstop from the Dominican Republic hit in all six games of the World Series, including a shot and two doubles with three RBI, making many chances to score and having good fielding to get out of jams to lift Houston to its second World Series title.
Jeremy brilliantly became the American League Gold Glove Award Winner as a shortstop this season and was named both the World Series and the ALCS MVPs this postseason, being the second rookie to win the two MVPs in MLB history.
