With the regular season now over and the post season heating up, I am starting a new series here on the blog.
For every single day between October 5, the first day after the regular season ends, until November 4, the scheduled day for Game 7 of the World Series, I will pay tribute to an October hero who may have fallen through the cracks.
Some are relief pitchers who came out of nowhere to save the day. Others are unlikely hitters or starting pitchers who shone when nobody expected.
Others set up memorable home runs or clutch hits. Others were heroes whose deeds were pushed out of the spotlight by another heroic moment. And a few were those who would have been World Series heroes had their teams not collapsed.
Many of these players have become cult heroes among their own fan bases but whose deeds have been forgotten by virtually everyone else.
So every day I am picking one October (or November!) hero whose highlight aligns with the date.
Check in every morning between now and November 4th and tip your cap to a few post season heroes you may have forgotten about.
