It's always nice to see a familiar face on national television especially, during the World Series.

That is exactly how it felt for me when I spotted Hunter Renfroe on game day one of the World Series. I remember seeing him and making small talk when he would come through the clock tower at Southwest University Park.

I used to be the El Paso Chihuahuas receptionist 5 years ago in 2015. So I would get to greet all sorts of players that would come through the doors. Hunter Renfroe was one of them and was a cool all-around guy. Not only was he a nice person but also a really great baseball player.

Well, the former Chihuahuas baseball player's new team is the Tampa Bay Rays. He still plays just as awesome as I last remember seeing him play for the Chihuahuas. For example, his high fly ball as Hunter Renfroe hit a home run at a recent game.

In 2019 Hunter Renfroe left the San Diego Padres and joined the Tampa Bay Rays just this year. It sure felt nice to see him play again and brought back memories of when he used to play for the El Paso Chihuahuas.

Renfroe still is quite the athlete on the field which you will notice when you watch his highlights from the World Series. Just because Hunter Renfroe was my former favorite El Paso Chihuahuas player doesn't mean I am turning against my Dodgers. Hunter Renfroe was one of the many players that helped the El Paso Chihuahuas get to the Pacific Coast League Championship in 2015.
