More Twitter fun. Last night MLB promoted some “Jersey Shore” Snooki tie-in thing in which that Snooki person will be at the Mets game tonight:
Rays third baseman Evan Longoria saw that and asked a good question:
I’ve looked it over several times, but I see nothing in MLB’s social media policy that requires players to be on board with their taste-impaired promotions, so I guess Longoria is safe. In addition to being right.
(thanks to Allison for the heads up)
Update: The photographer was apparently in on the action, according to Topps. Still pretty funny. (Hat tip: Mike Ashmore)
Thursday marked photo day for the Blue Jays. There are always some oddities, usually when the players create fun for themselves. This time, the fun happened when a photographer mistook shortstop Troy Tulowitzki for a pitcher. Tulowitzki rolled with it and followed the photographer’s instructions to pose like a pitcher.
Hazel Mae has the hilarious video:
Hitters, of course, typically pose with a bat over their shoulder. Pitchers typically have their hand in their glove, sometimes leaning forward as if receiving the signs from their catcher.
Tulowitzki has exclusively played shortstop during his 12-year career in the majors, but perhaps one day he’ll step on the mound and be able to call himself a pitcher.
