Editorial Seventh entry

Venezuelan Miguel Rojas gave us one of the most memorable scenes of this 2023 season in Major League Baseball (MLB) this Sunday when he made a defensive play for the Los Angeles Dodgers in the middle of an interview with the broadcast of Sunday Night Baseball for ESPN.
The play that turned the MLB around
As has become a custom in the live broadcasts of the network, which owns the exclusive rights to the main game of the weekend in the United States, the production chose a player to interview him during the match.
Just on the second pitch of the second inning against the San Francisco Giants, Venezuelan Thairo Estrada hit a hit for the short stops, the field of “Miggy Ro”, who executed the play defensively, but not before apologizing to the reporters for the interruption.
“Excuse me guys, I have to make this play quickly,” Rojas said.
The video went viral on social networks and unleashed many comments, some laughing at the play and others recognizing how difficult it was to maintain concentration on the game while answering the reporters’ questions.
The play was one of the 4 defensive interventions that Rojas had in the game. Although he couldn’t contribute with the wood, his glove helped the Dodgers keep the score close to take a 3-2 victory against the SF Giants in 10 innings.
Miguel Rojas’ numbers with Dodgers
Miguel Rojas, a Dodgers signing last offseason, has paid dividends defending the short stops in the face of Gavin Lux’s injury in spring training. He has only made six errors in 426 opportunities, figures that leave his fielding percentage at .986.
Despite a long list of injuries on their roster, mainly among the starting pitchers, the Dodgers once again secured the Western Division pennant in the National League.
