Chicago White Sox catcher, Yasmanni Grandal, had a signature moment in 2021.
The Chicago White Sox were a team loaded with signature moments in 2020. It comes with being a good team. For the White Sox, they had a lot of great players making great plays to help them win games. Nothing came easy in 2020 because of the fact that it was just a short 60 game season along with the fact that they are just coming out of a rebuild. Yasmani Grandal contributed to that with his signature moment, which gave the White Sox a win with one swing.
Grandal had a moment to forget just a little before this awesome moment. The White Sox gave up the game-tying run in the top of the ninth because Grandal made a horrible mistake on a play at the plate. He is one of the best defensive catchers in the world but he made an error in this instance. It was tough to see for Grandal who is normally so good with his glove but he sure made up for it.
With no outs in the bottom of the ninth, he hit a ball to pluto to give the White Sox a 6-5 victory over the Kansas City Royals. This victory also put the White Sox into first place which was something that was new territory for fans. They had a long battle to the finish line where they finished just out of first but this was one of the many moments that helped get them to the playoffs.
Of the many signature moments that the White Sox had this season, this one has to be one of the coolest. It was awesome because of the fact that it was a great redemption for Grandal. He made the biggest mistake that had a hand in the Royals getting the game tied but he fixed his mistake by hitting the game-winning blast. Hopefully, the White Sox are able to get many great moments out of Grandal over the next three years!
