The making of Jacoby Ellsbury
The night after his first walk-off hit, it was the same story. Another tie game, ninth inning, Ellsbury due up. With two out, he ripped an 0-1 fastball over the center field wall. Another walkoff hit -- his first walkoff homer -- and his dream season continued.
Ellsbury was a first-time All-Star and is having a career year at the plate, even as a run producer, not just a table setter. He has career-highs set in doubles, home runs and RBIs with nearly two months left in the season.
