Terrance Gore’s statistical anomaly
When the Atlanta Braves won the 2021 World Series on Tuesday night, Terrance Gore joined a select group of Major League Baseball players who have three World Series rings. He also has perhaps the strangest statistical numbers of anyone in this group.
Terrance Gore’s incredible stats on his way to winning third World Series with the Atlanta Braves
In his seventh season, Gore won a World Series ring as a member of the Kansas City Royals (2015), Los Angeles Dodgers (2020) and this year’s Braves team. There’s one main reason Gore was a member of all of these teams: his speed. In fact, of the 102 games Gore has appeared in his career, 62 of those games have involved him as a pinch runner.
In those seven seasons, Gore has only made 77 regular-season appearances on the board. Take away the 58 he racked up with the 2019 Royals and Gore, 30, made 19 appearances on the plateau in the other six seasons.
Think about these statistics for a moment:
During that 2019 season, Gore had three more hits. These are the only three extra-basic hits of his career, which means he has as many as World Series rings.
He has two more World Series rings than he has a career RBI.
He’s been hit with a throw (three) as many times as he’s been on a team that won the title.
Gore, a native of Georgia, signed a minor league contract with the Braves during the offseason and was a member of the neighboring Triple-A team from Atlanta to Gwinnett until Atlanta selected their contract ahead of the series. National League division against the Milwaukee Brewers. Gore, a Georgia native who said he always wanted to play for the Braves, is finally getting his wish.
He would get one at bat in the NLDS as his only trip to the playoffs in 2021. He wouldn’t appear in any of the World Series games, as a pinch runner or in any other role.
But it doesn’t matter. At the end of the World Series, Gore is again champion. He might not have the Jorge Soler swing or the Carlos Correa glove, but Gore is a weapon on basic paths… and that’s enough to get teams to want him on their roster as they pull themselves together. fight for glory.
