Those are beautiful tears of joy from Manoah’s mom. You know this is so awesome for her. After all those little league games and feeding him orange slices after a win or loss, it’s now time to see her baby boy light up the stage at Yankee Stadium. This is something kids dream about growing up, and now it’s a reality for Manoah.
To make the above clip even better, you can see just how jacked up his mom was when he recorded his first strikeout. The whole family was going nuts and rightfully so. Blue Jays fans have been waiting a while now to see what Manoah is made of and he’s surely answered the call.
This start figures to be the first of many for him with Toronto. Him making some early noise in the Bronx is only going to add to the excitement for his potential with the club. Everyone can’t wait to see how his year will shape out, and folks in Toronto will be ready to cheer their hearts out for him. No one more so than mom.
