Junior used to play baseball here in NL. He once flew to NY without parents when  he was twelve to see the Yankees play. 

He still has a Rivera #42 T shirt.

In general, a day at the baseball park is an extremely enjoyable and relaxing occasion.

the 2017 world series is all tied at 2-2

a cuban player (Yuli Gurriel, the Houston Astros first baseman, who defected from cuba in 2016) hit a homer off a japanese player (Yu Darvish, who was born in japan to a japanese mother and an iranian father). The cuban player then did the slitty eyes.
He's been suspended for 5 games without pay next season, which will reportedly cost him $321k (he earns $12M a year), but will continue to play in this world series.
