Cincinnati Reds outfielder Ryan Ludwick doesn’t generate nearly the media hype as Bryce Harper, who was labeled “The Chosen One” when he graced the cover of Sports Illustrated at age 16 and was chosen No. 1 overall by the Washington Nationals in the 2010 Major League Baseball draft.
But it’s Ludwick, a graduate of Durango High School and standout at UNLV, who’s hitting .262 with two home runs and 15 RBIs in his 12th Major League season
and playing almost every day, while Harper is out until at least July after undergoing ligament surgery on his left thumb.
Ludwick, 35, missed much of last year after tearing cartilage in his shoulder on opening day. He seems to be playing the field with a little higher regard for his body this year, not laying out for balls as often as he did in St. Louis and San Diego.
