Athletics closer Huston Street has won the 2005 American League Rookie of the Year. Street finished 2005 with a mark of 5-1 and 23 saves in 27 opportunities, with an astonishing 1.72 ERA. I think that it is safe to say that Street saved the Oakland Athletics from a very possible sub .500 mark on the season, and he’s only 22 years old. I look forward to seeing him close games for the Athletics in years to come.
Congratulations, Huston. Well deserved!
