White Sox SS Tyler Saladino Has Mr. Miyagi Emblazoned on His Bats (Pics)


I guess if you’re looking for inspiration and a patient eye while standing at the plate, you could do a lot worse than turning to the Karate Kid’s Mr. Miyagi.

White Sox shortstop Tyler Saladino has a picture of the martial arts guru on the knob of all his bats, possibly in an effort to channel inner peace and focus, but more likely because he just REALLY enjoys 80s movies.

Of course, the White Sox weren’t gonna let this go without giving it a nod on their social media:

I wonder if he performs better with the Miyagi bats than he does with the #12 bats. One would think…
