# David Hensley’s Journey to the Astros’ World Series Title
It’s been a wild ride for David Hensley since he was called up from Triple-A in August of 2022. He got the chance to make the postseason roster, and then the Houston Astros went on to win the World Series. Now, David is turning his attention to the 2023 season, and is hoping to make the Opening Day roster. In this blog post, we’ll take a look at David’s journey to the Astros’ championship and how he is preparing for the upcoming season.
## The Call-Up and the World Series
David Hensley was called up from Triple-A Sugar Land in August of 2022, and he made an immediate impact at the plate. He slashed .345/.441/.586 in 29 at-bats for the Astros and played second base, third base, shortstop and left field. He even got a chance to start in Games 3 and 5 of the World Series in Philadelphia, and he got a hit in each game. After the Astros won the World Series, David was able to take part in the championship parade and get his ring-sizing done.
## Working Towards the 2023 Season
Now that the offseason is in full swing, David is working out four or five times a week and getting baseball drills in at Minute Maid Park with the Astros. He is hoping to make the Opening Day roster in 2023, and is using his excellent strike zone discipline and ability to play all four infield spots and left field to his advantage. With the starting nine position players and designated hitter seemingly set, the Astros will have to decide who will be the backup catcher, the fourth outfielder, and the two remaining roster spots for a fifth infielder/utility player.
David is also working on improving his game plan and trying to better understand his opponents and how pitchers will try to get him out. He has learned that opportunities abound if you’re prepared, and his dream of winning the World Series with the Astros came true last year.
David Hensley is taking all the right steps to make the Astros’ Opening Day roster in 2023. He has already had a taste of the big leagues and the World Series, and he is determined to make it back to the majors and help the Astros defend their title. With his hard work and dedication, David is sure to make an impact in the 2023 season.
