Great Britain’s lefty paper of record offers play-by-play for MLB games? Who knew?
Bottom 1st: Derek Jeter leads off for the Yankees. And he strikes out with a check swing…and hands the bat to a little girl in the stands.
Can’t blame him.
Better a pink bat than a gift basket, I guess.
Bottom 1st: Curtis Granderson steps in and he has bright pink shoelaces to match his bat. Granderson skies it to deep short…and there are two outs.
End 1st: That brings up Alex Rodriguez and A-Rod puts his own twist on this Mother’s Day tradition—he’s got pink wristbands. And they’re about as effective as Granderson’s shoelaces. A-Rod hits a slow roller to third…inning over.
Top 2nd: Jesus Montero leads off for the Mariners and he has really brought the pink today—in addition to wristbands, he has some fierce pink spikes on.
And Montero rifles it to short…but Jeter makes the grab. One out.
for his generous support.
