That’s really the best explanation for the dramatic finish in the Chicago White Sox’s 9-8, walk-off victory over the New York Yankees in Thursday night’s Field of Dreams Game in Dyersville, Iowa.
On a night dedicated to actor Kevin Costner, corn fields and a 32-year old movie, Yankees’ sluggers Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton and White Sox spark plug Tim Anderson put the baseball world on notice; MLBbros are the past AND the future.
The three MLBbros combined for four home runs, three coming in the ninth inning alone.
Judge was the first to announce his presence in Iowa, blasting a three-homer into the corn fields beyond the right field fence.
Anderson knew the ball was gone as soon as he made contact, and even hit the “it’s ova” — a la Vince Carter — the minute he stepped out the box. Anderson had his official coming out party this week. The five-tool shortstop hit three home runs in three Prime time games this week. To be the face of MLB, you have to do more than put up numbers and kiss babies. You actually have to come through in those high pressure moments.
The walk-off was a statement in itself, but Yankee great Alex Rodriguez had the most poignant words of the night.
@AROD nailed it. Great cultural perspective. Great insight. That’s why #MLBbro.com was started on April 1. If you support diversity in baseball then support the voice of that diversity by giving us a follow. pic.twitter.com/AZmq3dxp2K
