The Bisons' broadcast team does an in-game interview during each home contest, and Ben Wagner and Duke McGuire usually talk strategy with manager Gary Allenson. During Sunday's series finale against Charlotte, they tried a different idea.
Brace yourself, Toronto. It was Munenori Kawasaki.
The Japanese infielder became a folk hero in Toronto -- and earned himself a couple appearances on MLB Network's "Intentional Talk" -- with a post-game interview that went completely viral after his walkoff hit beat the Orioles last May. This one was simply epic.
So starting off with that reference to "I am Japaneeeeese", here's how Kawasaki's chat went Sunday. His English is improving for sure. Note the references to Buffalo's cold weather, coaching at first base, living in a hotel and sushi.
