OPENING DAY IS ONLY FIVE DAYS AWAY!!!!!!!! Since we’ve been highlighting younger players the past few days, I thought I’d share some facts on the Los Angeles Dodgers’ No. 5, Corey Seager. The almost-24-year old, shortstop was drafted in 2012 by the Dodgers and made his Major League debut on September 3, 2015. He was selected for the National League All-Star team in 2016 and 2017, and named NL Rookie of the Year in 2016. He is also a 2-time recipient of the Silver Slugger Award.
In December 2016, after a very successful rookie season, Seager joined fellow Dodger Joc Pederson in hosting a youth baseball camp in Hawaii. Proceeds from the event benefited a local foundation.
