Inspired ChiSox fan mimics Kimbrel's delivery

September 11th, 2021

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, as they say, and White Sox fans are starting to get the hang of how All-Star closer gets the job done.

One young fan got out of his seat and into Kimbrel’s one-of-a-kind, pre-pitch lean-and-stare pose during the White Sox 4-3 win over the Red Sox on Friday at Guaranteed Rate Field, and we have to say … it’s a pretty spot-on impersonation.

Kimbrel (and his shadow) pitched a scoreless eighth before co-closer Liam Hendriks shut the door in the ninth for the American League Central leaders.
