Cleveland Indians DH Mike Napoli is quite possibly the luckiest dude on the face of the planet.
Tuesday night, the Indians smoked the Chicago Cubs in Game 1 of the World Series, defeating the National League champions 6-0.
Despite batting in the cleanup spot on Tuesday, Mike Napoli went 0 for 3. It doesnt matter, though, because if history is any indication, the Cleveland Indians already have this one in the bag.
In his 11 seasons in the Major Leagues, Mike Napoli has made eight playoff appearances. Thats one hell of a success rate. And if his team can scrap together three more wins, Nap will capture the second World Series ring of his career.
Youve heard the old adagewhen it rains, it pours,right? Well, in Mike Napolis case, that couldnt ring truer.
See, not only is Napoli a winner on the field, hes also a champion away from the baseball diamond.
Why, you ask?
