Alek Thomas: ‘These are the moments that we live for’

Arizona Diamondbacks center fielder Alek Thomas (5) rounds the bases after hitting a two-run home run against the Philadelphia Phillies during the eighth inning in Game 4 of the NLCS of the 2023 MLB playoffs at Chase Field in Phoenix on Oct. 20, 2023.

With his team trailing by 2 in the bottom of the 8th, Alek Thomas stepped up to the plate as a pinch hitter, in what was probably the biggest at-bat of his young career.

And boy did he deliver.

After the Diamondbacks ultimately pulled away with a nail-biting 6-5 win, Thomas spoke with Jon Morosi about what his emotions were like while he was rounding the bases.

As pointed out by Morosi, it has been quite the ride for Thomas this season.

Not too long ago, up until mid-June, Alek Thomas was playing with the Reno Aces in the minor leagues.

Now, he already has three postseason home runs in his first trip to October baseball at just 23 years old.
