Puig speaks and introduces mom to LA (video)

puig-and-mom-mlb-grab.jpgI missed this the other night. Yasiel Puig, looking more relaxed these days, brought his mother to Dodger Stadium for his bobblehead night. She threw out the first pitch — to her son — then they hugged as Puig took the microphone and addressed the crowd for the first time. Brief, and heavily accented, but Vin Scully called it a historic moment.

Why shouldn't he relax?: The dude leads the Dodgers in batting average (.324), OPS (977) and walks, and his seven home runs are second on the team.
