Fifteen-year MLB veteran and former All-Star Adrian Gonzalez hasn’t played in the MLB since 2018 but he is ready to take the field once again. Gonzalez announced that he is planning on playing in Mexico with the hopes of joining Mexico’s Olympic Baseball team at the Tokyo Games this summer.
The four-time Golden Glove winner may no longer be in the MLB but he is excited for the season to start. In an interview with Sports Illustrated’s Kaitlin O’Toole, Gonzalez discusses the changes he’s seen in Major League Baseball calling it an “interesting contradiction on MLB’s part.” His hope is that the changes made will bring back some excitement to the game.
Gonzalez, like the rest of us, is eager to see how the strategies evolve this season and what it means for the future of the sport. One thing Gonzalez would like to see is MLB keeping the universal designated hitter, a rule that was changed in the league last season due to the ongoing pandemic.
Aside from watching this MLB season, Gonzalez will be preparing to make his debut in Mexico. The first baseman shares that to get his body ready, he has been doing low impact workouts using the LIT Method. Gonzalez plans to host a live class the week of March 1st with LIT Method. Now until Friday, February 26th, individuals can enter the giveaway to win the NEW patent-pending Strength Machine to raise funds for World Central Kitchen.
