Hello and happy Saturday.
If you read these threads every day, then you’re probably aware of a fun YouTube series the San Francisco Giants have put out called “Catchin’ Up,” because I’ve posted a few of the videos. It’s a simple but entertaining idea: video of a Giants player playing catch while answering questions.
One question that was posed to all of the Giants who appeared in the segment was about who would win in a foot race, manager Gabe Kapler or bench coach Kai Correa. Which leads to the latest “Catchin’ Up” video, where Kapler and Correa play catch with each other, while trying to guess which players voted for which coach.
It’s pretty entertaining, and they do remarkably well with some well-reasoned guesses.
Now I have a hankering for catch. Anyone have a mitt and a free day?
