BOSTON (CBS) — The Jonny Gomes “sensation” is going worldwide.
Gomes is fresh off another World Series title, this time with the Kansas City Royals, but is taking his talents to Japan. The 13-year MLB veteran signed with the Rakuten Golden Eagles, announced on The Player’s Tribune by Gomes himself. He’s still hoping a job opens up for him stateside, but is nonetheless excited to conquer a new baseball scene.
Toucher & Rich have had plenty of fun with Gomes since he signed with the Red Sox in 2013, from his resemblance to 1980’s wrestlers to not taking any guff in grocery stores. Now that Gomes is heading to Japan, Rich decided it was time to remix the “Hacksaw Jonny Gomes” theme song.
Meet “Samurai Jonny Gomes” (the new hit single begins at the 5:20 mark):
