Rough and Tough is the Game for Indians Sizemore

SteveCorrespondent IJune 28, 2008

If you’re a young kid who wants to play baseball, follow Cleveland Indians center fielder Grady Sizemore.

He is by far one of the best outfielders in the game today.

He comes to play every night giving his all, diving for line drives and climbing the wall to make a spectacular catch.

The 25-year-old is a great all around player.

Sizemore is closing in on 100 career home runs and just recently reached the 300 RBI plateau.

Grady can also steal bases as he has stolen over 20 bases the last three years. He is by far one of the best lead off hitters in the majors.

Sizemore has the power to knock a ball out of the park, has the speed to steal 30 bases.

He is also a doubles machine; he had 53 doubles in 2006. He was at one time the iron man of MLB with games played streak of 382 before he suffered an ankle sprain and missed 2 games, but he hasn't missed a start since.

Grady was selected to the 2006 and 2007 AL All-Star teams.

At the end of the 2007 season Grady earned his first Gold Glove after having just 2 errors all season.

Sizemore was the 2006 AL doubles and runs scored champion.
