Javier Baez keeps finding new ways to entertain Cubs fans

first_imgBaez, as he usually does from the right side, swung for the fences from the other batter’s box. He fell to a knee as he flew a ball to center field. Javier Baez is not a switch-hitter. He is naturally pulled toward fun, whether it’s a sexy slide into third base or juggling chewed gum in the dugout.On Thursday night, the right-handed shortstop decided to bat lefty with a seven-run lead. The Cubs led by seven, and Reds position player Kyle Farmer was on the mound lobbing eephus pitches. The stakes weren’t high for the gag. Javier Baez is an entertainer.He just batted left-handed!pic.twitter.com/jEx99INsPy— Sporting News MLB (@sn_mlb) August 9, 2019MORE: Here’s how to watch “ChangeUp,” an MLB whiparound show, for free on DAZNSome traditionalist managers would have been upset at Baez for such a maneuver, but Cubs skipper Joe Maddon is usually a fan of zany activity on the diamond. He is also used to his star infielder finding new ways to enjoy the game.UPDATE: Maddon in fact did support the move.Baez asked Maddon if he could hit lefty and the manager told him to go for it. Felt it was a good time to try it in-game (against a position player in a blowout), though Maddon thinks it’s something Javy could learn to do.Does Javy think so? Not so much. He’ll stick to righty. pic.twitter.com/RoIiKALK0g— Jordan Bastian (@MLBastian) August 9, 2019last_img read more
