Fan of the day
Justin Fluet, better known to BTS competitors as jtfluet5, has vaulted into first place on the BTS leaderboard with a 34-game streak.
Like most residents of Watertown, Mass., Fluet lives and breathes the Boston Red Sox. And like the Red Sox, Fluet has taken off in the last month, thanks in large part to the red-hot bat of Dustin Pedroia — his favorite BTS pick. With Pedroia hitting just about everything that comes his way over the last month (.378 AVG), Fluet finds himself in the midst of a career streak since he started playing in mid-July, an accomplishment that gives him easy bragging rights over his BTS groupmates.
By relying on Pedroia and pouncing on favorable historical matchups, Fluet is hoping to ride September into the record books, much like his favorite club.
