FORT MYERS, Fla. — Boston Red Sox fans weren’t the only ones soaking up the club’s spring training workout at JetBlue Park on Saturday.
A self-proclaimed Mini Yu Darvish showed up to Red Sox camp on Saturday wearing a full Texas Rangers uniform. The fan, who looks just like a smaller version of the Rangers’ Japanese ace, asked about Red Sox relievers Koji Uehara and Junichi Tazawa as the full squad stretched on one of the fields at Fenway South.
Mini Yu Darvish apparently goes by the moniker, “Minivish,” evidenced by the name on the back of his Rangers jersey. This isn’t the first time “Minivish” has been spotted around Major League Baseball spring training complexes, as the superfan was seen at Rangers spring training a couple of years ago. On that day, “Minivish” broke out a white Rangers jersey, whereas he opted for a blue jersey on Saturday.
