The postseason has come to an end for the Atlanta Braves and the Capital Region's Ian Anderson but not before Anderson proved he 100% belongs in the Big Leagues. It's been pretty amazing to see just how good the Shen grad really is and just as nice to see the entire 518 rally behind one person. Even though the Braves fell to the Los Angeles Dodgers it's pretty clear the future is bright in Atlanta with four starting pitchers 26 years old and younger. At only 22 years old Ian Anderson had an MLB rookie year for the ages. Now that the World Series is set between the Tampa Bay Rays and Los Angeles Dodgers let's take a minute to see how the Capital Region reacted to Anderson's amazing performances.

CBS6's Gardner Royce says what we're all thinking.

Former Levack and Goz intern Kevin Sweeney shows why he's going to be one of the best sports reporters one day but maybe not the best husband lol.

The bottom line is Ian Anderson took the level of Capital Region pride to a big-time high in a year where there are few things to get excited about and maybe even fewer to agree upon. I think I speak for all of us when I say thank you for showing your competitive greatness and class at every opportunity. I'll always be a Yankees fan first but it looks like I'll be rooting for the Braves every fifth day for a long time to come.
