Mic’d Up Little League Baseball Players Is The Best Thing You’ll See All Day

Little League baseball

One of the more recent trends in sports broadcasting is putting microphones on athletes while they are competing.

For some slower sports, like baseball and golf, announcers have even started interviewing players during play. Doing that isn’t as easy for sports like football or basketball, but it’s been welcomed in the games that can use an occasional pick-me-up from time to time…if you catch my drift.

And it’s also a great way to make little league baseball more interesting, as proven true by the video below. Someone had the genius idea to put a microphone on one of the little leaguers, and it went about as well as you’d imagine.

If you played when you were a kid, try and think back to some of the conversations you had as a little league player. You never really talked about the game, did you?

If you happen to have kiddos playing youth sports right now, you’ve probably asked yourself, “I wonder what they are thinking out there?” This clip will either take you back to the good ole days, or answer that last question.

A player from a Sioux Falls little league team in South Dakota was given the honor of being mic’d up, and I went ahead and transcribed some of the best quotes below:

“It’s raining tacos from the sky! Nom, nom, nom, nom. So yummy in my belly.”

“Where’s your mom at?”

“Pitchers, pitchers, pitchers got a big butt!”

“Wait. Are you playing at the playground today?”

“Hey booger, booger, booger, booger.”

Simpler times. And I’m guessing that last line was supposed to be a play on the classic “hey batter, batter, batter.” Or the kid just preferred to say the word “booger.”

I don’t know about you, but I’d love to go back to the times where my biggest choice in life was whether or not I’d have a Nutter Butter or a package of Oreos after the game.
