Twins Slugger Bashes Home Run While Mom Gets Interviewed During Game [VIDEO]
The heartwarming tale of Minnesota Twins first baseman Chris Colabello just gets better and better.
Colabello has been one of the best stories in baseball through the first month of the season. He played in an independent minor league before landing in the big leagues last season. This year, he’s the starting first baseman for the Twins and is among the league leaders in batting average and RBIs. It’s the story movies are made of.
The feel-good theme was ratcheted up yet another level this week when Carabello blasted a home run Wednesday night while his mother was being interviewed by Fox Sports North. Pretty amazing, right? I’ll see your amazing and raise you a “no way” with this — it all took place on Colabello’s mother’s birthday, making for a day she won’t soon forget.
Now, how exactly will Colabello top this for Mother’s Day?
