We can talk about the home run itself a little more below, but this sentiment from the MLB twitter account shouldn't be ignored:
Remember when Kendrys Morales broke his leg attempting a similar walkoff celebration? And then he didn't play again for over a year? And then he wasn't back to his old self for more like two years? And, in the meantime, major league players pretended like they would try not to be so unnecessarily stupid in the future? And how that pretense lasted all of like two weeks?
Well, maybe Major League Baseball should think twice about tweeting something like what they did yesterday following the walkoff home run from Freddy Galvis.
Home Run of the Day: Miguel Cabrera #3, Detroit Tigers - 23.71 seconds [video]
How do you decide between a trio of home runs from the reigning Triple Crown winner during a Sunday Night Baseball game and a pair of back-to-back home runs to walkoff? It's a tough choice, but I'll give the honors to Cabrera if for no other reason than the fact that this is already the second time this season that a game ended on back-to-back walkoff home runs. Cabrera's other two tater trots on Sunday night clocked in at 23.68 seconds and 23.34 seconds, a remarkable level of speedy consistency from the Tigers third baseman.
In Chicago, Cubs pitcher Travis Wood (and his beard) crused a ball over the left field wall and onto Waveland Avenue. Many days, that would be the easy Home Run of the Day. For Sunday, it was nearly forgotten.no comments
