20-Year-Old Roberto Osuna Comes From a Baseball Family

Roberto Osuna, the young closer of the Toronto Blue Jays, had not pitched above the Class-A level before this season.  But that didn’t scare him in the pressure situations he found himself in this year with the big league club.  He had a brilliant relief performance in Game 5 of the ALDS against the Rangers.

Roberto comes from a baseball family.  His father, Roberto Sr., played in the Mexican League for twenty-two years, and his uncle Antonio Osuna pitched in the majors for eleven seasons.

Roberto Jr. made his professional debut in the Mexican League in 2011, when he was only 16 years old.  Only a few years earlier he was playing with Mexican-based Little League teams that toured Japan and Italy.
