Tim Anderson Is The Franchise Anchor For A Rising White Sox Squad

Tim Anderson is someone you want on your team and the White Sox love his leadership qualities

For the past few seasons, Anderson has been a household name throughout the MLB. When it comes to excitement and swag, Anderson has brought that to the game.

And he does it well. Whether it’s the bat flip after a home run or his smooth game at shortstop, Anderson is someone you want to watch.

Our MLBbro had his breakout season in 2019 when he batted .335, which led the league. This brother showed no signs of slowing down after that. 

What did he do in 2020? Oh, he just hit .322 during the shortened season and won his first Silver Slugger award. 

Going into the 2021 season, Anderson wanted to continue to make an impact on the field, and so far he is doing just that.

So far he’s living up to the expectations of one of the top players on a talented Chicago White Sox team. Through 60 games, Anderson is hitting .297 with six home runs, 26 RBI, and 13 stolen bases.

He’s getting it done on the field as well. Anderson is posting a .975 fielding percentage through 59 games. One thing about Anderson is that he’s going to leave it all on the field every time he touches the diamond.

Not only is he exciting to watch, he also is a leader on the field and in the clubhouse. Anderson knows how to stay true to himself and that’s something he takes pride in.



“It’s nothing like, ‘Hey, I need to be that, I need this to happen,’ ” Anderson told the Chicago Sun-Times. “But if I just keep being me, standing on what I believe in, then I’m happy in my spot where I’m at, where my feet are. And that’s cool, too.”

“I’m going to keep leading and be an example, leading and inspiring people and making my teammates better,” he said.

White Sox manager Tony La Russa enjoys having Anderson on his team. But, then again, who wouldn’t want a player like Anderson on their team?

“What I’ve learned is he has a gift and burning desire to win,” La Russa said, “and he communicates to his teammates and does it in a real positive way.”

“He has great spirit, and it’s all about wanting his team to win. That’s the best motivation there is, and it’s infectious with our team.”

If you have paid any attention to the White Sox this season, you would see that Anderson is a big part of the team’s success. 

Through 74 games, the White Sox are 44-30 and are first in the American League Central Division. 

Like La Russa said, Anderson’s leadership qualities are infectious and the fans on the South Side love Anderson.

The younger Black generation has a great player to look up to. Anderson plays with passion and you can tell he has a deep love for the game. 


When his career is done, Anderson will be a player that people will talk about for years to come. That’s how much of an impact he’s leaving on the game.

Our MLBbro is one of the best out there!


Tim Anderson Bobblehead Doll Celebrates The Reemergence of Swag Culture In MLB

Tim Anderson Bobblehead Doll Celebrates The Reemergence of Swag Culture In MLB

Tim Anderson is the coolest Bro in the game. And here’s proof.

On Saturday, his White Sox will give away his bat flip bobblehead which captured the most iconic moments of his career.

This isn’t the first time Chi-Town’s Sox honored the former batting champion with his own bobblehead doll. 


However, this one represents the true essence of  Anderson and his cultural impact on the sport. 

With a runner on second, two outs, full count in a tied game in the fourth inning, the stage was set for one of the more generational-changing moments in recent baseball history. 

Anderson stood in the box and absolutely exploded on Royals’ pitcher Brad Keller’s fastball and sent it to the stands in deep left field.  He knew it was gone immediately and as he stared the ball down, he backpedaled and threw his bat down the third baseline.



This moment may be light to some, but baseball players usually decide to quietly celebrate their on-the-field success, suppressing bursts of emotion that may be boiling inside of them. leaving them as they rounded the bases.  

Not Anderson. Not then and not now.  Since then, many in the league have followed his lead. Home run celebrations seem to be a competition now.  From golf carts in the dugouts to huge gold chains and dance routines. 



Don’t get it twisted, and never forget, Anderson is the Bat-Flip OG.

The bat flip bobblehead was originally supposed to be released May 30, 2020, in a game against the Minnesota Twins but was postponed due to Covid.

This year, White Sox fans will get to grab their TA bobblehead this Saturday as he will match up against one of the game’s best center fielders in MLBbro Cedric Mullins and his Baltimore Orioles.  Anderson and Mullins currently sit 26th and 27th in batting average at .296 and .294 respectively.

T.A. has been one of the top all-around ballers this season.  He ranks second in fielding percentage for all American League shortstops and is third in batting average for shortstops across the league — and No. 1 in sauce. 



Anderson has already caught a few victims with the bat flip this season.  He has five home runs through the first three months, his biggest being a grand slam off fellow MLBbro Triston Mckenzie.  He also caught Twins’ pitcher Michael Pineda lacking when he blasted his first pitch of the game for a leadoff home run.

Anderson and his White Sox have a huge interleague test this week when the St. Louis Cardinals and Black Ace hopeful Jack Flaherty fly to the Chi.
