Edwin Encarnacion Destroys A’s TV Camera with Foulball
Edwin Encarnacion obliterates Oakland A’s TV camera with foulball.
Edwin Encarnacion has been a power hitter from the first time he held a bat as a kid. It is no secret that he can hit a baseball as hard or as far as anyone in the world. A guy who averages 34 home runs a season for his career is someone you would expect to be able to demolish a camera.
While Edwin has struggled to make contact at the plate this season, his home run totals are on pace as usual. While his batting average and on-base percentage are about 50 points lower than his career average, he has managed to slug 20 homers.
Along with Edwin’s relative struggles, the Clevland Indians are underperforming as well. In spite of being in first place, they have the worst record of a first-place team. The Indians do however hold the biggest lead in a division race in all of Major League Baseball. This goes to show just how weak the Indians competition has been this season and why fans are skeptical of their success.
Regardless, Indians fans are looking for any bright spot to distract them from the somewhat disappointing season so far. Edwin is always a good source of comic relief with all of his antics. From his invisible bird that perches on his shoulders during his home run trot. Even his big smile can bring joy to baseball fans, destroying cameras is something we haven’t seen him do yet.
Edwin’s line drive in the 5th inning was not intended for the camera, but it did make for good television. The shattered lens did not affect the game in any way, but it was fun to see through it. The A’s TV crew gave us an exciting look through the lens after the play. This may have been a cry for help, warning us of the dangers of Edwin Encarnacion with a bat. Who knows?
