Xander Bogaerts Maintaining Composure Despite Struggles (Video)


Boston Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts isn’t having the best season, but he certainly isn’t acting that way.

If there’s anything positive to take away from the 21-year-old’s .224 batting average this season, it’s that he’s still able to maintain his composure and try his hardest every single day.

“I can’t imagine a kid his age handling it the way he has,” former Sox pitcher Dennis Eckersley said. “If there’s one thing, it’s the way he’s done that more than anything else. I remember when I was 20 years old, I had a great year, and the next year I got killed…and the first half of the season I was devastated. It’s hard to come back from that.”
