In the 119 years of the MLB Postseason, only one player has more home runs than José Altuve. Who? Bolvip tells you.
If you appear among the five players with the most hits and home runs in the 119-year history of the MLB Postseason, It’s because you’re really good. Jose Altuve has not had the best performance both in the 2022 world series as in the Playoffs, but even so, only one player surpasses him with more home runs when the best of the Major Leagues begins.
After breaking 23 at-bats without giving a hit, a record in MLB Playoffs history, Altuve began to be more aggressive every time he stepped up to the plate. And when the player born in Venezuela is in circulation, he is always a threat to be able to steal a base, get to second and be in a position to score a run that can be key in the 2022 World Series.
In Game 4 of the 2022 World Series Houston Astros vs. Philadelphia Phillies, José Altuve reported with a hit that led him to become the first Venezuelan player to reach 100 hits in the history of the MLB Playoffs. There he was not going to stop the historic performance of the ‘Astroboy’.
The fifth game of the 2022 ‘Fall Classic’ arrived and in the Astros’ victory by three runs to two, Altuve reported with two hits that made him enter a historic Top-5 that even Albert Pujols himself could not enter. And when it comes to hitting home runs in the history of the MLB Postseason, Jose is not far behind.
