Kurt Suzuki, Maui Native and catcher for the Washington Nationals is playing on baseball’s biggest stage: the 2019 World Series! A very humble Suzuki is hoping to bring the title to not only Washington, but home to the islands. As a role model for so many children he hopes to show them that anything is possible!
Washington edged out the Astros last night with a score of 5-4. Suzuki helped contribute in the 5th when he was walked and singled in by Victor Robles. Game 2 is today at 2:00 pm HST.
Win or lose, Maui and the islands are so proud of Kurt’s accomplishments! We will be watching and cheering throughout the series!
Our neighbor, Braves catcher Kurt Suzuki, was hit by a pitch Friday in the hand during the game against the Philadelphia Phillies during the 4th inning. Suzuki was able to remain in the game an additional two innings before finally having to be replaced.
Suzuki is bruised up pretty good. He is hoping to return to the lineup early this week. Best wishes for a speedy recovery!
