Giants Announcer Accuses Troy Tulowitzki of Stealing Signs, Rockies PA Guy Responds with Some Ace of Base (Video)


On Tuesday, San Francisco Giants broadcaster Mike Krukow accused the Rockies’ superstar shortstop Troy Tulowitzki of stealing signs.

“There is no way you can hit like that for this long,” he argued. “I mean, if you hit .571, that’s for a weekend or a week. But you don’t do it for six weeks. That’s insane.”

Of course, Tulowitzki is hitting .326 with the bases empty and .473 with runners on for a total of .380, and the .571 Krukow was referring to is his average at Coors Field—which is insane, but not that insane for a good player, because it’s Coors Field. But anyway, you get the idea—Tulo is raking and the Giants homer is a sore loser.

So how did the Rockies respond to the allegation? Well, manager Walt Weiss called it silly, and Tulowitzki has made no official statement. The guy in charge of the PA system at Coors Field made a pretty good response, though. Last night he played “I Saw the Sign” by Ace of Base after Tulo got a hit.

Now, at this point you may be confused. Many other sports blogs have reported that Tulo changed his walk-up music to “I Saw the Sign,” apparently based on this tweet:

However, as awesome as that would be, it’s not true. I went back and looked at the game, and Tulo’s walkup music was not “I Saw the Sign.” It was definitely the PA guy:

Either way, though, Krukow got burned.
