Nationals shortstop Trea Turner is a player who often gets overlooked. 

But that may change very soon. 

Trea Turner will be the first batter in the World Series when the Washington Nationals face off against the Houston Astros on Tuesday night.

He’ll have a lot of weight on his shoulders but he doesn’t seem to be letting that get to him.

During warmups, ahead Game 1 on Tuesday, as Turner was mic'd up he was very energetic while interacting with his teammates. 

 

"We get it, you hit some homeruns," Turner said jokingly with Juan Soto. 

The shortstop has a very good batting average at .298 and was recorded at having the fastest speed of any shortstop this season at 30.3 miles per hour. 

Now we'll have to see if he'll step up to the plate in Game 1.
