Nick Swisher After World Series Win
Congrats to Nick Swisher on winning his first World Series title. He's just the sixth Buckeye to play in the Fall Classic and is the third to earn a World Series ring. The Buckeyes hadn't had a former player in a World Series game since 1968 when Joe Sparma and Johnny Edwards faced one another for Detroit and St. Louis, respectively.
Swisher played for the Buckeyes from 2000-02 and was a first-round draft pick of the Oakland Athletics. He also played for the Chicago White Sox before joining the Yankees prior to the 2009 season.
Go Swish! and Go Bucks!
