After hitting a home run during his second Spring Training game at the Minor League complex our boy Josh took a page from the WBC announcers’ book on “How to Be a Canadian” and made his way to the Tampa Bay Lighting game against the Maple Leafs.
And apparently the rain he brings at a baseball game applies as well to a hockey game. The Leafs won the game 5-0 after being pummeled during their last game.
The short interview also gave Jays’ fans some good news as we learned that Donaldson may be seeing a big league game as early as this weekend! After a calf strain earlier this spring, Donaldson has yet to see a Spring Training game. The minor league games he has hit in has been just that, him hitting. Any balls in play were did not see him run to first, and is probably why he hit a HR today. He just didn’t want inconvenience anyone. How kind of you Josh.
So let’s hope Donaldson is right and we see him this weekend cause it’s been too long.
