DENVER (CBS4) – Nolan Arenado’s dirt-stained jersey from Sunday’s amazing walk-off win over the San Francisco Giants is going to be immortalized for years to come.
The Rockies third baseman posed for photographs Tuesday outside the clubhouse where the jersey temporarily hangs in a case along with the ball Arenado blasted into the stands at the bottom of the ninth inning to complete the cycle and win the game 7-5.
It was one of the few times in the history of major league baseball that a player completed the cycle with a walk-off home run.
“It’s really cool. Obviously it means a lot. It’s very nice of them to show it. I’m happy the fans get to check it out, because that’s what it’s all about. And I think at the end I’ll be able to keep it so I can give it to my dad but if they don’t let me I’ll probably just steal it out of that thing, so it’s all good,” Arenado joked.
