VIDEO: Jose Ramirez Narrowly Dodges Huge Blunder on Sunday Night Baseball
In celebration of the Little League World Series, the MLB held a memorable Sunday night game between the Los Angeles Angels and Cleveland Indians at Bowman Field in Williamsport, Pa.
Dubbed the Little League Classic, one of the newer MLB showcase games was another major success to end the weekend. While the Indians won the contest 3-0 and without much drama, that didn't stop an interesting moment for third baseman Jose Ramirez.
Ramirez, one of the purest-hitting third baseman in baseball, narrowly dodged a huge blunder during the ESPN Sunday Night Baseball broadcast. Check out the video below.
The game entered the bottom of the third inning with the heart of Cleveland's lineup coming to bat. Ahmed Rosario, the No. 2 hitter, led off the inning while ESPN was busy conducting an in-game interview with Ramirez in the dugout.
Only, Ramirez seemed to forget his spot in the lineup. Backup catcher Wilson Ramos casually walks over to his third baseman during the interview while broadcaster Alex Rodriguez rattles off a question. The placement of his helmet over the broadcast headset is pure hilarity. And, before we know it, Ramirez ditches and the headset and races over to the on-deck circle without saying a word to the ESPN crew.
It's a wonder if MLB managers are cool with these in-game interviews taking place during the nationally televised games. All in all, Ramirez dodged this blunder just in time and the Indians went on to secure the victory.
