Perfect Team Community Manager Kris Jardine and Out of the Park Developments CMO Rich Grisham welcomed a very special guest on the latest episode of This Week in Perfect Team on the company’s Twitch channel: Houston Astros pitcher Lance McCullers, Jr.
Astros fans will be happy to hear that McCullers’ rehab from Tommy John surgery last month is ahead of schedule. Unfortunately, he’s still ruled out for the 2019 season, but “I’ll be ready to roll in 2020,” he told Jardine and Grisham. “I’m hoping that my last two guaranteed seasons in an Astros uniform will be the best I’ll ever have.”
Check out the replay of the Twitch stream on YouTube to also hear McCullers talk about the Astros’ thrilling seven-game 2017 World Series victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers, his charitable work, and his thoughts on the performance of his Perfect Team club, McCullers Mashers. McCullers and the OOTP Developments guys also had fun ripping some Gold packs in Perfect Team.
They also unveiled a pair of new cards during the broadcast (see if you can spot the theme):
Bronze Unsung Hero – 1986 Lance McCullers Sr. (64 OVR)
Gold Historical All-Star – 2017 Lance McCullers Jr. (85 OVR)
