Cubs minor leaguer Muni Kawasaki talks Brad Pitt, ghosts in latest interview
Sometimes a language barrier makes for funny TV :) Let us present your new favorite I-Cub -- Japanese infielder Munenori Kawasaki! He has an entertaining pre-game warm-up that is sure to be a hit but he's still working on his English.Posted by WHO TV Channel 13 News on Thursday, April 7, 2016
Although he put together a great spring training with the Chicago Cubs in which he hit .367 with one home run and eight RBI, Munenori Kawasaki was sent down to the minors for the start of the season.
It was a heartbreaking move for baseball fans everywhere, since Kawasaki is a favorite of many, but he’s still his fun-loving self in Triple-A. In fact, he gave yet another fantastic interview recently before the Iowa Cubs game.
In it, he revealed that he loves the Chicago Cubs, has thoughts about Brad Pitt, and hates ghosts — because he’s scared of them despite never seeing one.
Kawasaki gives more memorable moments than just about anyone in baseball, one of which came last month when he homered on the same day that he was released. It’s only a matter of time before the Cubs recall the Japanese gem to the majors.
