Something in the air!

OK, OK, you already know that two former Spinners are in the running for Rookie of the Year honors, a former Spinner claimed the National League batting title, a former Spinner threw a No-Hitter last season, and there were three former Spinners named to the MLB All-Star Game. It couldn’t get any better…could it?

Yesterday, two former Spinners picked up a World Series ring, shortstop David Eckstein (1997) and right-handed reliever Josh Hancock. It was Eckstein’s second World Championship — his Angels took the title just four years ago — and the unlikely hero hit .364 in the five-game series, and was named World Series MVP.

Congratulations to David, and to Josh!
