Joey Gallo is making the best of quarantine life, with the Texas Rangers slugger setting up batting practice in his home.
People around the world are learning how to adapt to working from home right now and athletes are no different. Texas Rangers slugger Joey Gallo showed as much on Saturday when he posted a video of his home batting-practice setup.
In what appears to be his living room or dining area, Gallo has all he needs: a tee, a net and a bucket of balls. Gallo posted a short video of himself smacking balls off the tee toward his giant windows and scenic view.
The lefty captioned the video with “I’m sorry neighbors” and “My neighbors are going to hate me by the time this quarantine is over.” Gallo certainly has the pop to drive his neighbors insane, having hit 41 home runs in 2017, 40 in 2018 and then 22 in just 70 games of an injury-shortened, All-Star 2019 season.
Gallo has shown that he will hit anywhere. Earlier this offseason he was taking swings in the Rangers’ then-unfinished new stadium.
It’s still unclear when the MLB season will start or what it will look like, but whenever baseball does come back it’s clear that Gallo will be ready to hit.
