How Juan Soto’s father set the foundation for his big playoff moments

In last August he was sitting behind the backstop at the amateur baseball field.

He took off his glasses while queuing up to music on his mobile.

He picked up the shovel and started cleaning the mess around.

One by one he placed all the rocks and made a path so that people would not have to walk through the mud.

He was the father of superstar Juan Soto. 

For the Padres team, Juan Soto was the biggest mid-season acquisition. 

Juan Soto is just three wins away from his first World Series appearance since 1998.

The player on whom Soto decided the future of his franchise delivered one of the biggest hits.
