Randy Arozarena

Mexico and Japan are battling it out in the 2023 World Baseball Classic to see who will face the United States in the final and Mexico outfielder Randy Arozarena went viral for a great catch and an even better reaction.

Mexico led Japan 3-0 in the bottom of the fifth inning when a Japanese player rocked a ball deep into centerfield. The Tampa Bay Rays star made it back to the wall and snagged the would-be home run, preventing a huge momentum shift.

However, it was the vibe shift from Arozarena after the catch that really set fans and social media afire.

Not only did Arozarena cooly mean-mug after making the fantastic catch, but he even took time out to sign autographs afterward like a true king.

Social media was ablaze with adoration for the 28-year-old player, who has been making a real name for himself in the WBC. They loved the catch, but more so, his very cool reaction afterward.
