Blue Jays’ Munenori Kawasaki working hard on his English, is awesome (video)

Munenori Kawasaki began the season with the Buffalo Bison, the Toronto Blue Jays’ Triple-A affiliate but was called up on Thursday when Maicer Izturis tore his ACL.

This afforded the Internet the opportunity to again marvel at the unbridled enthusiasm of the young man. Not only that, Kawasaki has been working on his English — Spanish, too, apparently — and his grasp of the English language really is getting better, as you can see in the above video, where he discusses this and that, including how Buffalo is cold.

Some may recall this perfectly charming video of Kawasaki relying on notes during an on-field interview last season.

Awesome. Hopefully, Kawasaki can stick around and stay in the big leagues. The guy is a budding star.
