Nolan Arenado Formally Apologizes to … the Carton of Hi-Chew He Beat Up the Other Night

Baseball Is Fun

After striking out on some high-cheese late Monday night, Colorado Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado went into the dugout and took out his frustration on a carton of Hi-Chew, a Japanese fruit chew the team keeps in the dugout.

It … was not pretty.

But being the good guy that he is, Nolan Arenado took a couple days to cool off and eventually issued an apology … directly to the carton of Hi-Chew:

And … I’m dying of laughter. That was extremely well done and gets better every loop. I especially lose it in laughter when the camera pans over to the bucket just sitting on a stool, completely dead-pan. What a great idea.

Here’s Arenado’s full statement, in case you couldn’t watch the video.

Hey, Hi-Chew. How are you?

I know this is not the best time for this, but I’m really sorry for what I did to you a couple days ago. You’ve always treated me right. You’ve always been there for me when I needed you most. I wasn’t there for you.

I just want to know that I really care about you. And I’ve always appreciated everything you’ve done for me.

I’m glad to see these two have made up.
