Manny Machado's Throw in Yankee Stadium

The Baltimore Orioles' Manny Machado turned 21-years old yesterday, while in New York for a weekend series with the Yankees. On Manny Machado's 21st birthday, he received word that he made the American League All Star team. The day after many 21st birthdays is ordinarily a lazy, hazy day filled with rest and recovery after a night of drinking and debauchery. Today, Manny Machado evoked memories of Brooks Robinson.

How many 21st birthdays are
spent playing at Yankee Stadium?

This morning was filled with tense sports watching, with the riveting Breakfast at Wimbledon. I watched the start of the Yankee game, but turned away and missed the Machado play live. A tweet from e-migo Mighty Flynn alerted me of Machado's a nice throw.

Hopefully, this video can remain active for a while. Enjoy...
