The PNC Park jumbotron has introduced the Pirates’ lineup with some strange and cheesy videos in the past (such as this one), but when I saw this new one on Youtube I couldn’t stop laughing:
So much awkwardness. Some players (Gaby Sanchez) embraced the silly Saturday Night Live theme, some (Pedro Alvarez and Clint Barmes) clearly wanted nothing to do with it, and some (Wandy Rodriguez) are just flat out ridiculous. Great stuff. Apparently they’ve already used it for a few games and I hope they stick with it.
The Pirates Scoreboard Youtube account has also posted the new 2013 pregame video (which is pretty cool) and Jason Grilli’s entrance video.
