Seattle Mariners outfielder Leonys Martin turned 29 today, so the team got him a birthday present. Did they get him a cake? A gift certificate to Starbucks? A framed picture of Ken Griffey Jr. with his hat turned backward?
No. They got him a mariachi band, of course.
Spring training seems pretty great, doesn’t it? You’re in a warm climate during the cold weather months and it’s like you’re away at camp. Only you’re away at camp for millionaires playing baseball, and one of them will get you a mariachi band to follow you around and play music while you’re warming up. That’s not a bad life.
This was supposed to end not long after the above video, but one Mariner had a different idea.
