Alex Bregman Had Two Of The Craziest Walk-Offs You Will Ever See In 2018

As it looks like we are finally going to start Major League Baseball again soon in the year 2020, to wet your appetite, here is a repeat post from 2018, of two of the craziest walk offs in Major League Baseball you will ever see - the first one against the Padres and the second against the A's and both of them by the Astros' Alex Bregman for the Astros win.  How crazy are these two walk-offs....Bregman doesn't hit the ball 20 feet on both of them combined.

First published in the Tales in July of 2018:

Alex, "Mr. Walk off", Bregman does it again.  The third baseman and 2018 [and now 2019] All Star of the Houston Astros, who has five walk offs since and including his stirring walk off hit in the key 5th game of the 2017 World Series may have come up with the craziest two walk offs you will ever see.

On April  7, 2018 with no score between the Astros and Padres and a runner on second base in the bottom of the 10th, Alex Bregman got the walk off "hit" by doing this:

While that was a crazy walk off against the Padres-wait until you see this one against the A's that took place on July 10, 2018-this one has to be the craziest walk off you will ever see.

With the Astros just tying the score at 5-5 with the A's in the bottom of the 11th and runners on first and second with one out, Alex Bregman was up and did this with a 1-2 count:

I think I speak for all Major League Baseball fans who love the sport of baseball, that in the year 2020 there will be no finer two words spoken in the English language then when we finally hear:  Play Ball!
