Move over, Batting Stance Guy, there’s a new king of swing mimicry in town. Yu Darvish continued his glorious social media onslaught with a brief video depicting his homage to his favorite choke-up artist. Captioned simple, “Guess who?” the pitcher perfectly captured Anthony Rizzo’s hunch, leg lift, and down-to-a-knee finish.
But don’t be too impressed that Darvish did this from the left side. He’s actually ambidextrous, with the ability to pitch and hit from both sides. CI was even on hand to see him launch a BP homer as a lefty batter back in 2018.
