Last night Braves outfielder Todd Cunningham made his Major League debut against the Colorado Rockies. The 2010 second round pick laced a single into left field in his first at-bat, a pinch-hit appearance in the seventh inning.
While it was hist first hit in the majors, I think it’s unfair to say it was his first hit. That would discredit the musical masterpiece from the video posted at the top. Yes that’s the same Todd Cunningham in the video that you saw talking with Todd Helton last night.
When Cunningham returned to the clubhouse after last night’s game, the Braves had the youtube video ready to roll. It’s a really strange video, that I think is about abstinence? Anyway fast forward to about the 4:10 mark to see Cunningham’s rap.
Let’s hope that Cunningham continues to rock his jock both on and off the field (likely off the field since B.J. Upton is expected to rejoin the Braves after a three-game rehab stint in AAA).
