MLB: GL’s Top 10 ‘Gaffes’ of the 2021 Season

We love big plays – home runs that soar through the air on an angel’s wing, pitches that ignite radar guns and make the catcher’s gloves go up in smoke. We love catch art that defies expectations and great moments that will last for decades.

But if I’m honest with you, my favorite works are not those. My favorites are the bloopers (blunders or bears), the whoopsies, the how-in-the-world-moments-did that happen? I don’t know what it’s like to hit a 400 foot baseball, hell. The error is what happens when these superhero baseball players turn deadly for just one minute:

After an incredible 2021 season, filled with highlights and history, wonders and quirks, it’s time to goof around and look at the top 10 mistakes of 2021. Enjoy and try not to trip over your own feet:

  1. (Tie) Adam Duvall and Ke’Bryan Hayes miss some home runs.

  2. Edmundo Sosa’s torn pants.

  3. Hanser Alberto loses the ball in the sun.

  4. Kole Calhoun loses a fan.

  5. Rob Refsnyder learns the dimensions of Camden Yards.

  6. Joey Gallo pays for his arrogance.

  7. Brock Holt’s eephus of all eephus (eephusi?).

  8. Kyle Schwarber plays for the crowd.

  9. Luis Robert uses his head.

  10. The Pirates forget how to play baseball.

I am fond of the King of Sports, especially the Boston Red Sox in MLB and in general all of Mexican baseball. This profession has given me the opportunity to cover major events such as the Caribbean Series, LMB All Star, LMP (uninterrupted since 2009), signings of important players. I had the chance to attend the 2013 World Classic in Arizona, USA, albeit as a fan. Apart from this beautiful sport, I love basketball, where I have also narrated games and even an NBA friendly 10 years ago, but I carry baseball in my veins. Bachelor of Communication Sciences from the Autonomous University of Sinaloa (UAS) , from which I graduated in 2011. I was born in Mazatlán, Sinaloa and started in the world of sports journalism in 2004 in the newspaper El Sol de Mazatlán, where I was a baseball columnist and reporter at the same time. In January 2009 I came to El Debate as a journalist reporter and it was almost six years (in the first stage), until in November 2014 I emigrated to the radio providing my services at Línea Directa-Grupo RSN. My cycle there ended in July 2019 and after a few days, El Debate gave me another opportunity to work and opened the doors for me again. That is how I came to Al Bat, where I have been since 2019 as a web journalist.
