Jose Altuve is short in stature. No one denies this! This gives him a bit of an advantage because most pitchers have to work precariously close to his happy zone. Tampa Bay's Tyler Glasnow tried to get around this by throwing a chest-high fastball past him in the fifth inning of the ALDS. The Houston Astros second baseman wasn't having it.
The blistering two-run blast started the scoring and reverberated throughout the Lone Star state.
Just devastating for a pitcher to see. Not suitable for Hurler Internet.
