For anyone who enjoys baseball without the tension and stress of watching actual baseball, the time between pitchers and catchers reporting and false joy of spring training is the holiest of times of the baseball seasons.
It brings you things like the sound of baseballs smacking catchers gloves, the imagery of Indians players shagging fly balls in front of aircraft carriers, and most importantly, candid moments with players. Specifically, in this case, Carlos Carrasco’s children.
Captured in a pair of Twitter videos by MLB.com’s Mandy Bell, Carrasco’s daughters can be seen mimicking their dad’s pitching style and I can only assume breaking down his form as they talk to the crowd watching pitcher warm-ups.
Brace yourselves for the cutest thing you’ll see today: Carlos Carrasco’s little girls have been pitching alongside him today and I cannot handle it. pic.twitter.com/U7jvD1EqYC— Mandy Bell (@MandyBell02) February 17, 2019
