I'm making a fan post for all baseball at Tokyo 2021 Olympics discussion. I know I can't be the only one excited that baseball is finally back in the Olympics and after seeing that amazing first game between Japan and Dominican Republic, I definitely think we'll need a place to talk more about it for those interested.
The Japan team of all stars is definitely already showing why they're a favorite and of course when baseball is so big in Japan. However as much as I love Japan, I'll stick with my roots of course and root for TEAM USA!
Which I think many of us here should do as well seeing the exSox factor runs thick in there:
former Sox prospect - Olympic medalist in speedskating Eddie Alvarez
For a quick refresher of his best Sox highlight when he speedskated around the bases in ST: https://www.mlb.com/video/alvarez-s-inside-the-park-homer-c1230428683
former Sox closer - David Robertson
former Sox HR leader - Todd Frazier
former Sox starter - Edwin Jackson
It should be a very fun time for baseball in the Olympics. Let's go Team USA!
