It’s no secret that Jose Altuve has become one of the most beloved and idolized players in all of baseball. His breakout year in 2012 was just the beginning for the young star. Altuve went on to play in (5) All-Star games after his 2012 season, he won AL Most Valuable Player in 2017, and added (4) different Silver Slugger awards to his collection.
Where Altuve really stood out was on the field. When you battle as much adversity as Jose Altuve did throughout his career, you have to be scrappy and do the little things right, every time. This was accomplished through the art of defense. The people who study Altuve and his defensive play also pay close attention to the infield model he created for the 2018 and 2019 Wilson glove line.
