The Burgeoning Legend Of Steven Kwan


Ex Oregon State Beaver Making History

     The last time I saw Steven Kwan play baseball was in 2018, during his Junior and final season at Oregon State. My baseball buddy Dan and I had traveled to Corvallis to witness a late season Pac-12 national showdown between the 2nd ranked Stanford Cardinal and the 3rd ranked Beavers.

     Steven Kwan went 2 for 4 that night in a game that featured 14 strikeouts from controversial OSU hurler Luke Heimlich.  Kwan would conclude that national championship season with a .355 batting average and a 5th round selection that summer in the MLB draft by the Cleveland Indians. 

     Flash forward to the current major league baseball season, where Steven Kwan has rocked the baseball world with his stunning debut with the Cleveland Guardians, formerly known as the Indians. In his first 5 games in the major leagues, Kwan has done something no other player has accomplished in the modern era of baseball. He has reached base safely in 18 of his first 24 plate appearances.

     Kwan currently leads the American League in batting average with a robust .667, is second in MLB in runs scored, and leads the AL in both walks and on-base percentage. His 10 base hits is second only in all of baseball to Wander Franco's 11 for the Tampa Bay Rays.

     Just six days into the 2022 season, all eyes are focused on the 5'9" mighty mite. Yours should be, as well.
