ARLINGTON, TEXAS - OCTOBER 24: Brett Phillips #14 of the Tampa Bay Rays celebrate after hitting a ninth inning two-run walk-off single to defeat the Los Angeles Dodgers 8-7 in Game Four of the 2020 MLB World Series at Globe Life Field on October 24, 2020 in Arlington, Texas.

Last night’s hero for the come from behind crazy win for the Tampa Bay Rays is a Tampa Bay guy himself. Brett Phillips has played for the Milwaukee Brewers and Kansas City Royals, but last night the Seminole High School graduate got to have one of the biggest moments in Rays history for his hometown team. It was his first game for the Rays. He hasn’t even fully updated his Twitter profile yet. It still shows a Royals photo. Brett’s first ever postseason hit came in the bottom of the ninth with 2 outs and 2 strikes in the World Series. It’s the stuff you make up when you daydream as a kid stepping up to the plate.

Check out this great photo the Tampa Bay Times shared this morning. Lately there’s been a viral photo series called “How it started / How it’s going” where people post a photo from their beginnings and where they are now in life. Pretty sure this one can’t be beat!
