Nick Castellanos has made a name for himself by interrupting serious moments during broadcasts with his bat. It started a couple of years ago when he hit a home run during then Reds announcer Thom Brennaman's apology for using a homophobic slur. From there he interrupted a tribute for veterans who passed away and a discussion about a pitching coach's DUI.
Castellanos just can't help himself. As if all of that wasn't enough to start believing in baseball gods, he did it again on Monday during a Memorial Day tribute in Philly.
The broadcast team had just wrapped up an explanation of a gold chair that will sit empty at Citizen's Bank Park in honor of all the veterans who have made the ultimate sacrifice when Castellanos hit a home run to deep leftfield.
Here's how it all started:

Castellanos has definitely tapped into some other stream of consciousness or something. He keeps coming up big in these serious moments and you can't help but feel that there's an outside force at work.
