Munenori Kawasaki, everyone’s favorite utility infielder, is back with the Blue Jays after Maicer Izturis broke his leg earlier this week. Kawasaki began the year in Triple A Buffalo, where it appears he spent a lot of his time working on his English language skills – in the cold. The enthusiasm Kawasaki displays in this interview updating his progress learning English (and Spanish) with SportsNet Canada is terrific.
People complain a lot about baseball these days, but the game is in a better place when Kawasaki is spreading his infectious brand of joy around the Rogers Centre dugout.
Here’s a quicker version of the interview, which includes an anecdote from anchor Caroline Cameron on how Kawasaki tried to find her a husband on the Blue Jays roster during a golf outing last year.
