News 8 spoke with his younger brother, Michael who is watching Friday’s game at home. He watched the first two in the president’s box at Progressive Field with the rest of their family. He says his brother has been very relaxed through the World Series so far.

“Incredibly proud of him. Not even so much of his success as a professional, but just how good of a person he is, how humble he is through all of his success, it’s really impressive,” said Michael Antonetti.

Michael is superstitious. He’s worn the same shirt for all the postseason and World Series games.
