Yankees: Joey Gallo hits HR and a fan brings out the Italian flag at Yankee Stadium

Yankees Joey Gallo hits HR and a fan brings out

The home run of Joey gallo, the 29th of the season and the fourth as New York Yankee, produced the Yankees’ only two runs against the left-hander Jose Suarez. As Gallo circled the bases, at least one fan could be seen waving the red, white and green colors of the Italian flag, a display that Gallo took note of and said:

I remember coming here (New York) with the Texas Rangers and thinking, ‘Wow, this would be a great place to play. It makes me proud. I just ordered a shirt today that says “Italian Stallions” with me and [Anthony] Rizzo. I thought it was too good to pass up. “

Gallo, 1.96 meters tall, hit that home run in the bottom of the same first inning with a teammate on board and with an out on the board. The Italian-American gunner was third in the order and left fielder for the ‘Mules’. It was his only hit of the game.

The Yankees had an excellent opportunity to add more runs in the sixth, when Suarez walked the three batters he faced before leaving. Facing reliever Steve Cishek, Stanton struck out and Luke Voit rebounded on a double play.

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 in Línea Directa-Grupo RSN. My cycle there ended in July 2019 and within 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.
