Newest Yankee an 'OG Bleacher Creature'

March 17th, 2022

Isiah Kiner-Falefa has had a whirlwind few days. Last week, he was with the Rangers, a team for which he played his entire professional baseball career to that point. Then, he was traded to the Twins over the weekend. And a day later, he was dealt to the Yankees.

But while the journey sounds dizzying, the destination suits Kiner-Falefa just fine, as evidenced by his tweet Wednesday displaying a photo of himself as a youngster rooting for the Yankees in the bleachers at Yankee Stadium.

“Og bleacher creature!!!!” is what Kiner-Falefa posted along with the photo. It shows him wearing a Yankees cap and holding a mini Yankees helmet while taking in a game in the Bronx.

Sometimes life comes at you fast. That’s certainly been the case for Kiner-Falefa recently. But so many times, it’s the unexpected twists and turns that leave you pleasantly surprised.

The “O.G. bleacher creature” is now a real Yankee.
