I impressed Shohei Ohtani with my Japanese and he hooked me up at Comerica Park
I didn't just invent this trick -- I perfected it! Asking foreign players for baseballs in their native languages? OBVIOUSLY that's going to help you stand out from from every other doofus simply shouting "Heeeeeeere!! Heeeeeeeere!!" And by the way, this wasn't just any random baseball. It was THE ball that Shohei used to warm up for his start against the Detroit Tigers on the day that he pitched eight brilliant innings AND hit his 40th home run of the season. He better win the MVP Award. That's all I can say. Oh, and Miguel Cabrera was attempting to hit his 500th career homer, so there was LOTS going on at Comerica Park. I attended this game without my videographer, so I filmed the action POV style with a GoPro. Batting practice was a struggle, but at least I got to see Mike Trout in the outfield. Hopefully he'll be back soon from his injury. This game took place on August 18, 2021. The Los Angels Angels won it by the score of 3-1, and because Miggy did NOT hit the milestone homer, I decided to stick around for one more day. Look for that video next and thanks for watching this one.
