If you’ve been following baseball pretty closely this season, you would know that Colorado Rockies‘ shortstop Troy Tulowitzki is the hottest hitter in the game. The 29-year-old shortstop has shown signs of greatness — mostly at home — and people around the league are starting to take notice.
San Francisco Giants‘ announcer Mike Krukow jokingly insisted that Tulo had to be stealing signs while playing at home because no one can hit over .500 at home about two months into the season.
Although Krukow was joking, Tulowitzki decided to troll him a little bit in a home game on Thursday afternoon against the Giants.
How did he do this?
Every player has their own walk-up song that is usually a favorite song or something to that effect. Tulowitzki decided to change his walk-up song for a game to Ace of Base‘s ever-popular — at least in the 90s — ‘I Saw the Sign’ tune.
Could this have been any more perfect? Probably not.
Tulowitzki has been hitting a modest .521 at home this season with eight home runs and 24 RBI with an on-base percentage of .600 — yes, just ridiculous video game-like numbers.
The shortstop might be leading National League MVP talks as he has an overall .380 average, which leads the league, to go along with 13 homers and 35 RBI. It’s very rare you see a shortstop lead the lead in average and be close to the top in home run numbers and RBI.
Playing in the most hitter-friendly park in the bigs has to be an advantage for Tulo, but let it be known, he is not stealing signs, folks.
