One more reason I love America’s pastime*

Check out this 47 second clip of Elvis Andrus’ home run in yesterday’s game between the Texas Rangers and the Seattle Mariners.  In particular, pay attention to the way his teammates react when he returns to the dugout around the 27 second mark.  I know most of them are multi-millionaires.  But, they’re also really just overgrown boys playing a kid’s game.  Since MLB won’t allow you to embed their video, you have to click here to see it (while you’re there, you might want to watch the next video clip which shows the four home runs Nelson Cruz has hit this year; the third one is an absolute bomb to the opposite field upper deck).

*I know there’s a fairly compelling argument that football is more popular than baseball.  But, baseball got the title first and, as far as I’m concerned, it still owns it.  Kinda like a trademark.
