Baseball is a game where one should expect the unexpected. Tim Anderson made it as a reserve in the 2021 All Star Game last season without getting to bat. The baseball gods above changed that fate this season as this evening Tim Anderson was named as the starting shortstop for the American League. Anderson is a generational talent at shortstop for the Chicago White Sox organization.
Tim Anderson has played another good season thus far despite an early season injury in the first half of the 2022 season. Anderson was tightly competing with Toronto Blue Jays shortstop Bo Bichette for the starting nod at Dodger Stadium. The White Sox shortstop is humble as when it was announced I liked how he thanked others for helping him to this point. Anderson is hitting an above 300 batting average with fairly good defense. I think this was well overdue for the shortstop , and a good representation of players never giving up on their goals
However, Anderson’s interview on the news of the starting nod I liked how he said one key thing that gives Whit Sox fans hope. Anderson cares more about winning a World Series this year despite getting to start soon in an MLB All Star game. Tim Anderson is a team leader for the Southsiders , and a wonderful representation of all major league players. Tim is the type of talented player that belongs in the popularity contest voting known for the All Star Game. Congratulations TA, and best of luck starting at Dodger Stadium very soon. Playing Shortstop for the American League at the 2022 All Star Game, Tim Anderson!
