A little while back we posted a story about the 10 ten MLB stories going into the year. The number one question, about Garrett Wittels, has come to an end. Wittels’ streak ended at 56 games. The Florida International shortstop went 0 for 4 against Southeastern Louisiana on Friday night, leaving him two games shy of matching Robin Ventura’s 58–game Division I record set in 1987.
Southern Louisiana won the game 10-2. Wittels hit a sharp grounder in the 8th but the 3rd baseman made a diving grab.
I still stand by it being this year’s top story.
