Houston Astros shortstop Carlos Correa has continued to exceed expectations for the team, but the Puerto Rican claims that he will never be satisfied.
Carlos Correa is one of the MLB’s 10 youngest players and one of their best. Read on…
LatinoAthlete.com has this report about Carlos Correa and how he is a remarkable shortstop for the Houston Astros.
Astros reliever Will Harris said had this to say about Carlos Correa:
“He just looks like he’s a 5- [or] 10-year vet. You take it for granted when you play with him every day. It’s very easy to forget how young he is and how little experience he actually has playing at a high level.”
After only playing 53 Minor League games above the Class A Advanced level he was summoned to the major leagues in 2015. Now, two years later, Correa explains his views on playing in the MLB.
“The way I looked at it, it was the same movie in a different movie theater. I was playing the same game, but in a different stadium and a different atmosphere. But it’s the same game I’ve been playing my entire life.”
Carlos Correa goes on to explain this is everything he dreamed of. It was everything he wanted to do and be in life and now he’s living the dream.
“When I was in high school, I didn’t know what a club looked like. I didn’t really know what a party looked like. While kids were in prom and doing all this stuff, I was at the ballpark. They told me I was a boring kid. I was like, `No, I’m working toward my goal.’ At the end of the day, I knew I’d be able to do all that other stuff if I accomplish those goals.”
“No expectations from anyone could be higher than my own expectations for myself. I really feel like I’m never going to be satisfied. I want to keep trying to get better.”
