HOUSTON – The Los Angeles Dodgers were thrown off their game in the third game of the 2017 World Series in Houston. After hitting a home run early in the game, Houston Astros first baseman Yuli Gurriel appeared to make what many with a delicate nature consider to be a racist gesture. Yuli pulled the skin back on the sides of his eyes with his fingers for a brief moment, making fun of the shape of Asian eyes.
Soon after, Dodgers infielders met at the pitcher’s mound, gloves over mouths, and discussed the ramifications of the politically incorrect display that was directed at their Asian pitcher. LA was never the same the rest of the game.
Second baseman Logan Forsythe said at the mound, “Did you guys see that?! I am so sorry, Darv (referring to pitcher Yu Darvish). Don’t let it bother you. I’ll make it up to you after the game. We’ll get some sushi.”
Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager, speaking through his glove, said, “That dude’s gonna get some serious sensitivity training from the league, man. You just can’t make fun of Japs like that in today’s world. Unbelievable.”
First baseman Cody Bellinger told his teammates, “Guys, I don’t know if I can bat next inning after witnessing that! It’s rocked me to my core and I can’t seem to keep my head in the game!”
The Dodgers lost the game 5-3. For his part, Yuli Gurriel reminded reporters after the game, “I’m sorry. I’m from Cuba, where they don’t shove political correctness down your throat every waking minute of every day. I was so stoked after the home run that I forgot I was in America for a second. My bad.”
