Juan's World: Alex Bregman...WOW!!!!!

(WVUE) -

Welcome in to Juan's World and what a World Series Game five. But, as I close up shop in the office, I can't help but think back to when I was 23-years-old. I was fresh out of college, just landing my first job in journalism and thinking, this is as good as it gets. The along comes a guy like Alex Bregman, who just showed up every 23-year old that came before and after him. I'm sure there have been players his age or younger that have had an impact on a world series. Baseball's too old of a game for there not to be.

But, Bregman gave us another reminder tonight of how special of a player he is. We got to see it at LSU. But, no one could've predicted he'd be playing in 'any' world series, much less one this soon in his professional career. Some guys 'never' make it this far.

But, here's Bregman. Twenty-three years old and in his first World Series try, he's one win away from picking up a World Series Ring. It doesn't get any sweeter than that.

Oh, to be 23 all over again.

Juan's World, Juan's World...EXCELLENT!!!!!
