Why Baseball Treasure™ Chose José Altuve As Its Lead Player

    For the Houston Astros™ Jose Altuve 2017 was a year of awards. He took home the Major League Player of the Year and AL Most Outstanding Player along with his fourth Silver Slugger award. He led the American league (201) in hits and batting average (.346) along with an impressive set of other stats for the year. It was no surprise then when he was voted AL MVP for 2017 joining Hall of Famer Jeff Bagwell as the Astros only MVPs in franchise history.
Of course, Altuve's character and championship attitude cemented his place in Baseball Treasure's™ Genesis Set.
