Tim Anderson is a fantastic baseball player. He is one of the best shortstops in the American League and the Chicago White Sox are lucky to have him. It took him a few years to get to where he is at now and the White Sox are the beneficiaries of patience.
Not only is Tim Anderson one of the best players on the field, but he is also an incredible character off the field. The White Sox have seen him become one of the legit “faces of the franchise” type players over the last three years.
Now, Tim Anderson is a superstar to the point where people care about his life away from baseball because of his incredible journey. Anderson and the White Sox are releasing a documentary that is touching on different parts of his life up to his MLB career.
The first episode came out on Tuesday and it was very good. It started with his youth and went over how his love of basketball helped shape him into the baseball player that he is today. He ended up choosing baseball because of his success while playing it but he did love the court as well.
Tim Anderson’s basketball playing days helped him grow as a baseball player.
Anderson was a very good point guard in high school. He was a player that cared mostly about defense and facilitating the offense. Although he wasn’t necessarily the scorer as much as he was the facilitator, he always liked to have the last shot.
That ability and desire have shown in his Major League career up to this point as well. He has many clutch moments that have led to White Sox victories over the years which is incredibly impressive. It was so cool to see how the other sport he played helped shape what is becoming a very good Major League career.
Anderson’s youth really impacted the man and player that he is today. It is going to be interesting to see future episodes and what they show as far as his journey through life. The next episode will come out on Tuesday of next week at 10 AM CT. It is a must-watch on YouTube for all Sox fans.
