Carlos Correa's Baseball Career

Carlos Correa started his journey in baseball at a very young age. Born in Puerto Rico, Carlos often used to play catch near his house, and a neighbor saw his talent when he was just five years old, and suggested his parents enroll him into the youth league. Correa then started his baseball career as the first baseman. His father contributed a lot to his young career and trained him whenever he got the time for it.

Carlos was just 17-year-old when he was drafted in the 2012 Major League Baseball draft. In June he was picked by the Houston Astros team. This achievement made him the highest-selected player to be drafted directly from a Puerto Rican high school. However, he did not make his Major League debut until 2015. In his maiden season itself, Carlos was awarded the 'American League Rookie of the Year' award.

Further going forward in his career, in 2016, he became the youngest player in Astros' history to hit a home run on Opening Day. In 2017, he clinched the World Series title with his heroics and team's performance.

While he also faced the hardships of injury and crit sims in his career, Carlos and his statistics speak for his astonishing outing as one of the best shortstops in baseball.
