Which includes Javy Lopez for some reason. But it still works, I think. Probably because, apart from Lopez, no actual baseball players come anywhere close to the mic or the camera:
I mean, sure you might cringe here or there, but we’ve come a long way in baseball team-related music videos, people:
UPDATE: Comment of the Day — maybe Comment of the Year — from reader woodenulykteneau:
Can’t possibly think of why the Braves would choose a song that’s big all summer, but will fall off the charts by middle of October…
It’s funny — and painful — because it’s true.
The Royals recalled infielder Ramon Torres from Triple-A Omaha on Saturday. He didn’t get into a game until starting Thursday night’s game against the Rangers, batting ninth.
In the top of the second inning, facing Austin Bibens-Dirkx, Torres laced a single up the middle. Center fielder Delino DeShields charged in on it, attempting to keep Ryan Goins at second base, but the ball went right past his glove, through his legs, and nearly trickled all the way to the warning track. Goins scored easily and Torres was waved home, too. He managed to narrowly beat the throw, touching home plate with his left hand on a head-first slide.
The play was officially scored a single and a three-base error. Torres wasn’t credited with an RBI on the play. But at least the Royals got two runs out of it.
