Aroldis Chapman has been criticized and singled out by fans and the media for the mistake he made in the game between the New York Yankees and the Baltimore Orioles. However, the debacle of the Cuban baseball player would have had a certain PitchCom influence that Major League Baseball (MLB) began to use from Season 2022.
Video cameras caught Aroldis Chapman having trouble understanding what was being said to him through PitchCom headsets during the New York Yankees-Baltimore Orioles game.
‘El Misil’ made facial gestures that would indicate little understanding of the instructions that came to him from the ‘Mulos’ dugout before a new ‘debacle’ in his performances was present on the field. Here the video.
The Cuban took the mound in extra innings when Friday night’s game was tied at one run per side and failed in his work, since he gave away a passport that allowed the Orioles to win with a ‘wheelie’ run.
While there would be many factors that led to Aroldis Chapman being defeated by Baltimore, the PitchCom situation could be taken into account, a device that the New York Yankees are not very happy about.
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. Bachelor of Communication Sciences and Techniques from the Interamerican 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 of the Mexican Baseball League (LMB). ), Mexican Pacific League (LMP) and MLB. I was an intern for the Leones de Yucatán Baseball Club of the LMB, with whom I attended the 2019 King’s 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 at a game of the Leones de Yucatán, at the ‘Kukulcán Álamo’ Park, in 2015; And that changed my life completely. The ‘Melenudos’ are the team I love and the greatest passion I have in this sport. Although I play baseball most of the time, my sport, at first, 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.
