In the top of the ninth inning in Game 6 of the World Series, the Dodgers were three outs away from beating the Rays and winning their first title in 32 years.
On the mound was Julio Urías. The entire Dodger team held their breath hoping the 24-year-old pitcher could deliver the hardest outs of the night. But Urías wasn't just representing the Dodgers. In a sense he was representing an entire nation, the nation he was born in and where he learned the game of baseball: Mexico.
In a post on Instagram, it showed that Julio Urias' dad got a giant tattoo of the photo of the last out in Game 6 of the World Series. Here is what the artist ortega_ink said:

Heading into this season, Julio Urias earned himself a spot in this starting rotation. The projected rotation heading in to the season is Clayton Kershaw, Walker Buehler, Trevor Bauer, David Price, Julio Urias.
