Pro stars push boundaries
The 2021-22 sports season has definitely been interesting. In the sports community, we have seen a change in how sports have commenced and how players and fans have coped with the COVID-19 pandemic. However, we have seen some amazing things happen in sports in 2021 and in 2022 so far.
Shohei Ohtani is a Japanese baseball player playing for the Los Angeles Angels. He has proven his role on the team specifically in this last season by winning the American League’s MVP award.
He blew the ball out of the park by hitting 40 home runs and striking out 156 batters in 130 innings. Ohtani’s season proves to MLB fans everywhere that he is worthy of MVP.
The New York Times has described him as creating a whole new era in American baseball, along with being compared to one of the greatest players in MLB history, Babe Ruth.
Ohtani has proven his greatness in the last season and is showing great promise for this season as well.
Tom Brady is known as being one of the greatest football players of all time. He has proven his greatness over and over again by winning his seventh super bowl with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
He made a statement announcing his retirement but soon after announced he is coming back to play yet another season. In his career, he has won MVP five times and has led the NFL in passing yards for many years.
For instance, in 2017 he led with 4,577 passing yards and also threw 32 touchdown passes. Brady’s performance in the NFL is historic and he will go down in the Hall of Fame as possibly the greatest football player of all time.
Golden State Warrior Steph Curry is known as probably one of the best three-point shooters in the NBA.
He has broken records over and over again. In addition, he has also matched his own record by hitting at least one three-pointer in every game since 2018, which has been 157 consecutive games.
Curry broke Ray Allen’s record of 2,974 threes and has gone on to hit 26 more to be the first player ever to hit 3,000 threes.
Curry has gone on to lead the NBA in three-point field goals made and has a .428 three-point percentage. Curry focuses on excelling mentally and physically and has proven his greatness once again.
Sports bring people together and we are happy to see that fans have been able to go back to games and cheer for their favorite teams and players in 2022.
