Since joining the Los Angeles Dodgers last June, Yasiel Puig has quickly become one of the faces of the franchise.
This past summer, Puig was seen all over Los Angeles hanging out with celebrities and sitting courtside at Los Angeles Laker games. With his All-Star candidacy moving up and down with his recent slump, the slugging right fielder made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live to enhance his chances.
Guillermo from the show went to Dodger Stadium to interview Puig on why he should choose the Dodger outfielder for the All-Star game. Puig spoke some English while answering the questions and even sang along to “Take Me Out To The Ballgame” with Guillermo.
One of the more humorous responses came after Puig was asked if he feels bad about pitchers when he hits a home run off them. Initially, the 23-year-old said that it makes him feel happy, then when told he breaks the pitcher’s heart after a home run, Puig responded by saying, “Sometimes the pitcher breaks my heart too.”
