The 4 Best MLB Moments from Thursday

The best MLB Moments from another wonderful Thursday.

Happy Friday, all you crazy cats and kittens! Yesterday was a great day of baseball. We’re so lucky to have something as wonderful as Major League Baseball to cheer us up and give us hope throughout the year (especially in February and March, when everyone has a chance at the title). If your team is out of the running now, don’t give up on baseball! Find something new or someone new on your favorite team to root for, a milestone to watch out for, or hop on a bandwagon for a more successful team. Just don’t give up on America’s best sport.

Fun fact, shamelessly stolen from Reddit: Since touching Shohei Ohtani’s cup, Miguel Cabrera is slashing .312/.360/.396, with a 130 wRC+.


All That Shake and Bake, and (Some) Dinner!


Prime 1B Albert Pujols was an incredible defender. It seems he hasn’t lost some of that talent as a defender, even with a knuckler off the bat of Ronald Torreyes!




Romine to Romine



Except this one is extra special!




Luis Urías sent his regards, though:




Have yourself a great Friday and a great weekend, reader. Do something fun! Watch some baseball, if you can!
