The first thing you should know is that @Natt0 made this GIF, and it deserves to be shared:
The second thing you should know is that Jamey Carroll is a position player, and he threw in the bottom of the eighth inning of Monday's Royals/Twins blowout. This means the Twins are the current leader in "havin' fun" and "lettin' it all hang loose." The last time a Twins position player pitched was Drew Butera in 2012, so the wait wasn't that long.
- Carroll retired the side in order.
- He used nine pitches.
- He topped out at 79 m.p.h.
- His first two pitches were classified as a knuckleball
- His last seven were classified as changeups
The obligatory GIF:
Also, good work, Jamey Carroll. Good contributing to the position-player-pitching arts.That goes for you too, Ron Gardenhire. We need more skippers like you.
