Adding intrigue to the story is the fact that Peralta pitched for the Nationals during the 2010 season. When asked by reporters after the game how he knew to have umpires check the glove, Johnson made it pretty clear that he had some inside information.
“Well… he pitched here,” Johnson said, per Federal Baseball. “I don’t think it’s a secret.”
I would highly recommend you set your DVR for April 21 9pm ET for what might be the most intriguing look at a professional sports team. With everything that is happening with the Marlins, there is no way that this season is a dud.
Cheer up big guy, you’re going to be making a cool 1.3 million this year for pretty much doing nothing. Me, on the other hand, will be making the same amount of money for doing four different jobs besides mine for piss poor pay. I hate when millionaires can’t smile.
