Shane Victorino’s old walk-up song “3 Little Birds” features the lyrics, “Don’t worry about a thing, cause every little thing gonna be alright.”
That appears to be Victorino’s life motto, as he didn’t seem to be worried when a full-grown tiger was resting on his back. The “Flyin’ Hawaiian” took to his Instagram on Wednesday to share a photo of a new friend he made while on vacation in Thailand.
Victorino certainly has a history with tigers. In one of the more memorable moments from the Boston Red Sox run to the World Series in 2013, Victorino hit a grand slam late in Game 6 of the ALCS to help lift the team over the Detroit Tigers.
If Victorino was able to come through in a pressure-filled moment such as that one, there’s no way an apex predator is going to faze him.
