Luis Robert was an outstanding player for the Chicago White Sox in 2020.
Luis Robert was an amazing player for the Chicago White Sox in 2020. He had so many sparkling moments all year long that made fans so excited about what is to come for him. He is a five-tool player that literally does everything well on a baseball diamond. There were home runs, stolen bases, web gems in the outfield, and big-time hits that all brought fans out of their seats. He hasn’t even scratched the surface of how good he can be in this league.
There were many signature moments throughout the course of the season for Robert because he is a supremely talented player. He is going to be a human highlight reel for years to come with the White Sox. By the time we are done, we hope that him hoisting a World Series trophy is a key highlight of his career.
For now, we just have his 60-game COVID-19 regular season to choose from for his 2020 signature moment. There were some great options but the one against the Kansas City Royals stands out above the rest. He hit a baseball to Pluto in the bottom of the tenth inning to give the White Sox a much-needed win against their division rivals.
The White Sox had a lead in the ballgame but allowed the Kansas City Royals to tie it. The Royals were a much inferior team to the White Sox in 2020 but they can win a game on any given day. They climbed all the way back to get the game tied before Luis Robert made his mark.
With two men on base, Robert took it deep to give the White Sox a 5-2 victory. The win also put them in first place for the time being which was so sweet. To see the rookie come up clutch like that in his first year showed everything that is great about this team right now. There is so much talent and Luis Robert is leading the pack. Hopefully, he can have the same impact for the next ten years or more.
