Always funny when Arencibia does this, and this one is on point and funny as fuck. Very spot on impersonation.
Check out this video as Rays outfielder Kevin Kiermaier channeled his inner Affion Crockett with a pretty-decent Jay Z impersonation on Monday at the team's Spring Training facility in Port Charlotte. Fla.
The 23-year-old Kiermaier made his Major League debut for Tampa Bay as a ninth-inning defensive replacement on Sept. 30 of last season, when the Rays beat the Rangers, 5-2, in the American League Wild Card tie-breaker game. The left-handed-hitting Kiermaier hit .295 over 136 games in the Minors in 2013 with Double-A Montgomery and Triple-A Durham prior to getting his call up the show. Look for him to have a much increased role with the big league club this season at the Trop.
Former major leaguer Carlos Zambrano beans some dude during a Venezuelan Winter League game this past Friday. Zambrano has not pitched in the majors since 2012. Sounds like a perfect Mets signing.
Check out this INSANE grab made by Rockies prospect Tyler Massey during a recent Australian Baseball League game for the Melbourne Aces. Massey, who's American, goes all out to rob Astros prospect Joe Sclafani, who plays for the ABL's Adelaide Bite.
You've got to love Massey's effort and toughness on this play. You've also got to admire the love of the game by these players in the Australian Baseball League. Massey recently said that he thought twice about sliding head-first into the bag, because players in the ABL had to do their own laundry. But it ain't all that bad, I'm sure being a pro athlete and getting to travel to a place like Australian has it's perks too. I'm talking surfer chicks with Australian accents. Just stock up on that laundry detergent, man.
Sure Massey's catch was outstanding, but the classic play below by Rodney McCray in a 1991 Minor League game remains the gold standard of running-through-the-wall catches.
