VIDEO: Toronto Blue Jays SS Munenori Kawasaki hits first career home run, bowing ensues
The Toronto Blue Jays are having the most fun in baseball. Currently on a MLB-best 9-game winning streak and, as part of a dramatic comeback win Friday night, fan favorite SS Munenori Kawasaki hit is first career home run. But as it happened, after it happened, and chanted his name through his next at bat. Watch it all unfold (courtesy of MLB.com):
Kawasaki has been an internet video sensation with his lively postgame interviews and his willingness to regale fans with a rendition of “O Canada” while signing autographs (with not necessarily all the words, yet). It’s too bad something will have to give when 4-time All Star Jose Reyes and his $10M salary returns to the lineup. Here’s hoping the Blue Jays find a place for Kawasaki in the lineup.
