The postseason stage is where legends are born. Everything is magnified under the bright lights of October when a championship is on the line. It’s hard to fly under the radar when you come through in the playoffs yet Mark Bellhorn somehow doesn’t get enough credit for his production during the Boston Red Sox 2004 postseason run.
