Tampa Bay Rays star Randy Arozarena became the first player in MLB history to hit 10 home runs in one postseason. Even though Arozarena and the Rays lost the 2020 World Series to the Los Angeles Dodgers in six games, he still made a huge name for himself on baseball’s biggest stage.
After his coming out party in the 2020 playoffs, Arozarena is set to have a movie made about him, per Juan Toribio of MLB.com.

How foolish do the St. Louis Cardinals look right about now? They traded Randy Arozarena to the Rays for Matthew Liberatore (minors), Edgardo Rodriguez (minors) and a 2020 supplemental second-round pick. It’s safe to say that’s one move the Cardinals would like back.
During the shortened 2020 MLB season, Arozarena batted .281. He hit seven home runs and drove in 11 runs while stealing four bases.
In the playoffs, Arozarena went to another level by batting .377. As we previously mentioned, the Rays’ do-it-all slugger blasted 10 home runs while driving in 14 runs. He only struck out 19 times in 86 plate appearances.
The Rays have a bright future with Arozarena leading the way. It’s obviously going to take some time for Tampa Bay to get over the World Series loss to the Dodgers, but the team has to use that defeat as motivation to come back even stronger next season.
As for this movie about Arozarena, it’s a nice wholesome moment for a guy who now has fans all around the world.
