It took all of a couple hours for Yasiel Puig to announce his presence in The Land Down Under, hitting a towering home run to left field in a park that was built for another sport. Puig likes Australia it seems – just listen to him narrate in amazement of this Koala.
No ‘stumps’, no ‘creases’ here. Just a fortified bat flip we’ve became accustomed to since the Wild Horse made his debut in baseball.
We’re just 30 hours away from real baseball being played this weekend. This Aussie getting eaten alive by the Puigmonster serves as a fine appetizer to the main course that will kick off soon enough.
