Once in a lifetime: New Huskies manager relishing watching brother in World Series
New Duluth Huskies manager Tyger Pederson sat behind home plate last week during Game 2 of the World Series at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, soaking it in surrounded by family.
Moments like this don’t come around often, and it was even more rare when his younger brother, Dodgers outfielder Joc Pederson, launched a solo home run in the fifth inning against the Houston Astros.
“It was pretty surreal,” Tyger Pederson said Monday in a phone interview. “Being able to share that experience with him, and our whole family, is kind of what it’s all about.”
Tyger Pederson, 28, is an assistant baseball coach for Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo, Calif. He grew up 200 miles north in Palo Alto, Calif. Pederson missed the World Series games in Houston due to his college obligations, but he said the Pederson family — father, Stu; mother, Shelly; older brother, Champ; and younger sister, Jacey — will be in attendance for Game 6 tonight at Dodger Stadium.
“The whole Pederson posse will be there supporting him,” Tyger said.
