The The United States Baseball Team faced the Japan National Team on the day of this Monday, August 02 in the Tokyo 2021 Olympic Games. The confrontation had a special moment for fans of the MLB and above all of New York Yankeeswell two ex-Yankees clashed in a duel. We talk about Masahiro Tanaka and Todd Frazier, who saw each other’s faces in the fair and that is how it ended.

The Olympic Games in Tokyo 2021 have been the stage to enjoy baseball by elite players from various nations, who have represented the colors of their countries in remarkable ways.

Such is the case of Masahiro Tanaka, who was the starting pitcher for the Japan National Team in the game against the United States National Team, of which Todd Frazier is a member. And if that wasn’t enough, these two ex-Yankees met on Monday.

The winner of the ex-Mules duel was Frazier, since he managed to read the Japanese’s throws in a great way and connected a double to boost the first run of the game for the United States.

However, the slugger’s effort was somewhat in vain, as the Japan National Team overcame that of the United States and took victory at the Tokyo 2021 Olympic Games.

I joined ‘Al Bat’ in September 2020, starting a new work stage in which I always seek to give my best version, in addition to leaving a significant mark on the passage of women in an industry that is managed mainly by men. Degree in Communication Sciences and Techniques from the Inter-American University for Development (UNID), I am a specialist in sports journalism, writing and editing texts, I have three years of experience covering sports, especially baseball from the Mexican Baseball League (LMB ), Liga Mexicana del Pacífico (LMP) and MLB. I was an intern at the LMB Leones de Yucatán Baseball Club, with whom I attended the 2019 Rey Series. I have done work for social networks such as the coverage of the 2019-2020 edition of the LMP Final for ‘Con Las Bases Llenas’. I am constantly updated on social networks, SEO, Google positioning, writing, digital journalism, as well as the place of women in the sports industry. Originally from Mérida, Yucatán, my first approach to baseball was in a game of Lions of Yucatán, in the ‘Kukulcán Álamo’ Park, in 2015; and that changed my life completely. The ‘Melenudos’ are the team of my loves and the greatest passion I have in this sport. Although I dedicate myself to baseball most of the time, my sport, in the beginning, was (and still is) soccer. Real Madrid and Bayern Munich won my heart and fans from ‘minute one’ and I am fortunate to have already seen them play live. Clearly, I am a fan of Cristiano Ronaldo and Manuel Neuer.
