In honor of Tampa Bay and Texas opening the 2023 MLB postseason, ABC shared Jeff Passan's hilarious parody of setting the talents of Rays' outfielder Randy Arozarena to the hit Spanish song "Macarana" prior to his first at-bat of the game.
The 2023 All-Star, who hit .254 with 23 home runs and 83 RBI's this season, while adding 22 stolen bases. The 28 year-old standout has hit 20-plus home runs and stolen 20-plus bases in three consecutive seasons.
Due to his solid two-way abilities, Passan set his attributes to music in a parody of Macarana.
“There’s a guy who hits his name is Randy Arozarena. Every time he takes a swing it is a thing, it’s cosa buena. Runnin’ round the bases he’s as fast as a hyena. Aaaaarozarena! Ay!,” sung Passan.
