It began out as a joke, that was simply Mad Max being himself, so targeted he didn’t understand what was happening.
However it could be far more than that.
Max Scherzer didn’t simply spoil a fan throwing out the ceremonial first pitch Friday evening, he got in the way of Mikio Mori, Ambassador and Consul Common of Japan, doing the honors. Mori was within the metropolis for the primary Japan parade in honor of Japan Day on Saturday.
He wasn’t simply slated to throw out the primary pitch earlier than the Mets-Mariners sport. It was additionally Japanese Heritage Evening on the a hundred and fiftieth anniversary of the USA’ introduction of baseball to Japan.
Clearly, this wasn’t all Scherzer’s fault. The planning was poor. Maybe the Mets’ 2-1 loss was karma catching up with them.
