2015: Rookies, Upstarts, and Royalty
The 2015 Major League Baseball season provided fans with brilliant rookies, wild post-season scrambles, and an electrifying world champion. Our venerable National Pastime is alive and well in the early twenty-first century.
The Kansas City Royals, still smarting from their loss to the San Francisco Giants in the 2014 World Series, came out of the gate with attitude, establishing themselves as a team to be reckoned with, despite their being underrated by the pundits. Time and time again, the Royals came from behind, winning the World Series and forcing the baseball world to recognize them as a powerhouse.
In addition to the compelling season-long saga of the Royals, 2015 featured a dynamic rookie class, many of whom found themselves in the thick of pennant races. Among this group were American League Rookie of the Year, Carlos Correa; National League Rookie of the Year, Kris Bryant; and Noah Syndergaard of the New York Mets, the surprise National League Champions. Few predicted that the Astros, the Cubs, and the Mets, propelled by their young talent, would push their way into the elite post-season crowd and provide their fans with October baseball.
The 2015 baseball season featured Josh Donaldson’s establishing his bona fides as a super star, while capturing the American League MVP, and Bryce Harper’s compiling a season for the ages, while wrapping up the National League MVP. On the mound, American League Cy Young winner, Dallas Keuchel, and National League Cy Young winner, Jake Arrieta put their upstart franchises on the baseball map. All-time great performances by Mike Trout and Zack Greinke underscored the depth of talent Major League Baseball enjoys.
Diamond Mind Baseball is proud to present the memorable 2015 baseball season in our outstanding version 11 format, complete with all you need for a realistic and exciting replay. An era of gifted youngsters and brash new teams is dawning. Be part of the excellence.
