A’s Rookie Mark Canha Recites ‘Bull Durham’ Lines After MLB Debut (Video)


Mark Canha listened when Crash Davis spoke.

Canha is a rookie for the Oakland A’s who had an incredible major league debut Wednesday. The 26-year-old first baseman collected three hits — including a pair of doubles — and drove in four runs to help Oakland cruise to a 10-0 win.

However, Canha isn’t letting the early success go to his head — quite the opposite, actually. During his postgame media session, Canha deadpanned, as he recited part of the cliches speech from the classic baseball film “Bull Durham.”

Mark Canha had 4 RBIs in his debut and dropped Bull Durham in his interview. So awesome. @JaneMLB

The best part might be Canha’s subtle smile when he realizes he just had perfect execution.
