SJ - May 31, 2022

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.

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.
