It’s been a great week for baseball. Following the MLB’s Field of Dreams-inspired contest between the Yankees and White Sox, the Savannah Bananas flexed their own muscle for entertainment value with a stunning walk-up routine from the team’s infielder, Josh Lavender, on Thursday night.
Now, the Bananas team has created another headline-worthy moment, this time, on the mic.
On Saturday, Bill LeRoy, third baseman for the Bananas, pulled off a spectacular play-by-play prediction in front of audiences during a game against the Macon Bacon.
LeRoy, AirPods in and knees bent, was mic’d up and gave the announcers his prediction: He’s going to roll it over, I’m going to backhand it on the second hop and Manny Machado underhand throw to first.
What ensued was the sound of a cracking bat and jaws smacking the floor, courtesy of LeRoy’s psychic play-by-play commentary. Style points were off the charts for LeRoy, and the crazed announcers went nuts for the boisterous baseman.
LeRoy also has his own grandiose walk-up routine with the Bananas, seen back in July.
