We’ve been enjoying every driveway BP and backyard baseball that players are doing to stay in shape for when the season returns, but it’s exciting to get a taste of in-game action when possible.
Fortunately for us, NPB has been playing spring exhibition games — though the start of their regular season has been postponed until at least next month — which means we can even watch highlights from some familiar faces playing abroad.
Enter: Gerardo Parra, Mr. Baby Shark himself. The new Yomiuri Giants outfielder raced in and made a diving snag to rob the Baystars' Toshiro Miyazaki of a base hit on Friday night:

With NPB exhibition games underway, there will be more exciting highlights to come while we wait for the regular season to begin stateside.
