Joey Votto has been one of the most outstanding players in baseball over the past decade. The Cincinnati Reds have not achieved the success Votto, and other players had hoped for. However, it’s clear that Votto put in a lot of hard work over his long Major League baseball career. He has been in the league since 2007 and has been a superstar.
Votto thought about what it meant to him to be able to play at the Field of Dreams against the Chicago Cubs in Cincinnati this year. Check out the baseball betting sites.
Votto released the following statement, according to MLB.com:
“We had the VHS tape when I was a boy,” Votto said. “Maybe we had 20-ish movies at the house, mostly Disney movies, but ‘Field of Dreams’ was one of the movies we watched often. It had great meaning because it was one of the movie options we could watch at home. The movie is basically built around a catch with the father. It definitely resonates with me.”
“It has more meaning now that my father passed,” Votto said. “It’s what I do for a living. My father and I played catch. It was the beginning of my baseball experience. Now playing in the Field of Dreams Game in August, it’s not entirely full circle, per se, but it will have meaning.”
Recently, there have been many talks about Joey Votto becoming a member of the Hall of Fame. Given his impressive resume, there is no reason to believe he won’t be on the first ballot. He is the first Canadian player to reach 300 home runs and 1000 runs in a career since Larry Walker.
He has 342 career home runs, and a career average of.298.
