This Calls For a Celebration


By


In the midst of the Blue Jays 13-1 romping over the Kansas City Royals, something magical happened to one player in particular.

We've all been eagerly anticipating this event since the beginning of the season, but with his three hits last night, Aaron Hill climbed above the Mendoza Line for the first time since May 9th.

It may have taken 56 games for Hill to break the .200 plateau once again, and hopefully he can keep his head above that mark for the duration of the season.

In the meantime, let's bask in the glory and enjoy this Al Gore-sized celebration.

    A reliever came in in the tenth inning and gave up negative 2 runs?

  2. Nice usage of a classic Simpsons bit! "Mr. Vice President, someone just bought a copy of your book!"

  3. Thanks Steve - I've been waiting since May to bust this video out again. Usually it's only for special occasions, like when slumping hitters reach the .200 AVG mark.

    Congrats, Aaron!
