As everyone in the world of baseball knows, the Houston Astros are champions of the 2022 MLB season, defeating the brave Philadelphia Phillies in 6 games who are content to be monarchs of the National League. In a team led by Dusty Baker as manager, his emblem Jos茅 Altuve, also by Alex Bregman, Yordan 脕lvarez, Justin Verlander, his rookie sensation Jeremy Pe帽a and other players, Mauricio Dub贸n is part of this great team that won the second title of his history, confirming the dynasty of this group. By the way, it is a World Series record for a team to win with so many foreign players, being the Astros with 15 players in the new record.

Today he is an undisputed hero in his country, many of his countrymen, the sports media are celebrating because he managed to make history as the first catracho to be champion in the MLB, the tenth Latin American country that has a champion.

Dub贸n was born in 1994 in San Pedro Sula, one of the sports that he practiced the most was baseball and he was discovered at the age of 15 by a Christian group that invited him to go to the USA to form his sports career. Well, his first results were successful, the man was at a high level in High School both in offense and in his great virtue, defense. For those same skills, Mauricio was chosen by the Boston Red Sox in the 26th round 2013 MLB Draft.

Although generally, being chosen in such high numbers reduces the options of reaching the MLB, Mauricio never gave up, in 3 years he never lowered his offensive production. He was later traded to the Milwaukee Brewers where he continued to increase his value with options to reach his great dream, which came true in July 2019 by being the second born in Honduras after Gerald Young to reach the elite of baseball.

He barely lasted 2 weeks at MKE, because he would be traded to the San Francisco Giants where he would be for 3 seasons, a big move was because he had more participation with the Bay team, giving not only his ability in the infield but also in the outfield, leaving very good plays. His first home runs were hit by none other than Clayton Kershaw. His first postseason was in 2021 with the Giants.

Then he would be traded in the middle of 2021 to the Houston Astros where he starts this great story, this team Gerald Young had previously played, as fate would have it. He would be on a team contending for the title, where he earned Baker's trust to play several games, helping on offense and defense to win important games to qualify for the postseason, always on the active roster of the Texas team.

Mauricio participated in the first person, being in Games 2 and 4, where the second No Hitter in the history of WS occurred. He did not have at-bats, but he was attentive in taking care of his team's defense, in both games, they ended in victory, that is, in play, he remained undefeated.

Another great moment that he participated in was in that championship Game 6, it is known that these Astros are very united, they helped each other in the dugout so that their teammates could achieve the best connection to the ball and that was it, Dub贸n and others gave him that I support Yordan 脕lvarez to give the HR that would give the Houston team the title. As you can see in the image, several were together reflecting after achieving that achievement, those who appear there speak in Spanish.

Well, the great achievement that any baseball player wants is already in his hands, a reason not only in Honduras but throughout Latin America has celebrated. What remains in the future is to continue working to have more participation and recognition in this sport.
