Alec Bohm’s turnaround from a wild three-error game against the New York Mets to one of Major League Baseball’s more reliable third basemen has been quite remarkable.
Bohm believes his 2023 season with the Phillies will be even better.
“It’s just kind of continued that way,” Bohm told reporters during the winter camp. “I think we’ve done kind of a good thing and I don’t think there’s any need to look for more or try to do more. Personally as a player and as a team, I think we kind of have our philosophy, our attitude … and I think it’s more about showing up, being ourselves, playing the game and having fun.”
Bohm had at least one hit in five of the six World Series games against the Houston Astros. Boehm was also stellar defensively, going errorless in 20 chances.
Bohm finished the regular season with a .280 average, 13 home runs and 72 RBI. While he committed 13 errors, the improvement was huge from a three-fault failure.
“To be honest with you, the start of the season feels like two years ago,” Bohm told reporters. “It was a long year. And that’s baseball, there will be ups and downs. There will be good times, there will be bad times, but if there are no bad times, there will be no good times.”
