The Arkansas Razorbacks will have a former player win a World Series ring in 2021.
Two former Arkansas pitchers are expected to be on rosters for the World Series between the Atlanta Braves and Houston Astros. Drew Smyly is a starter for Atlanta and Ryne Stanek is a reliever for Houston.
The World Series is scheduled to begin Tuesday in Houston. The Astros are in the World Series for the third time in five seasons. The Braves are in the World Series for the first time since 1999.
Smyly, a Little Rock native, pitched for the Razorbacks from 2008-10.
