The decision of the Atlanta Braves to acquire outfielder Jorge Soler last July proved to be a good one. Like World-Series-winning-and-World-Series-MVP-capturing good.

November 2, 2021 will forever be etched in Soler’s memory after leading the Braves to defeat the Houston Astros in Game 6 to seal the crown. It will also be forever etched literally too, as one of his three home runs resulted in the baseball getting a deep mark from his monstrous hit (via ESPN’s Jeff Passan).

The 29-year-old Soler started the season with the Kansas City Royals before he was acquired by the Braves in exchange for pitcher Kasey Kalich. It was a stroke of absolute genius, as the pride of Cuba hit six home runs in his last nine games for the Braves.

With his tremendous performance in Game 6, he won his first World Series MVP trophy. The decision was a no-brainer. He also took home his second title after helping the Chicago Cubs capture the championship in 2016. He also became only the third World Series MVP to play for different teams in one season.

It took a variety of guys to help the Braves reach the pinnacle for the first time since 1995. From homegrown studs like third baseman Austin Riley to new faces like Jorge Soler, everything came at the perfect time for the Braves. Now, maybe all of them can have identical tattoos declaring: World Series champion.
