Baby Shark

When an entire baseball stadium, including some of his opponents, broke out in song, one first baseman didn’t know how to react.

As Mashable reports, Washington Nationals outfielder Gerardo Parra uses the famous tune “Baby Shark” as his walk-up song. And he has done so every game since June.

However, during a Nationals game against the Atlanta Braves on July 29, first baseman Freddie Freeman was left seemingly baffled.

As one tweet reported, Freeman was baffled when the entire stadium, and some of his opponents, broke into a performance when “Baby Shark” came on.

The tweet read:

Please watch [Freddie Freeman’s] reaction to the “Baby Shark” phenomenon that has caught on in DC because of Gerardo Parra.

As the video shows, Freeman is caught on camera looking around the stadium as he’s standing on the field, and those around him are singing “Baby Shark.” Freeman is seen almost baffled by the response and at one point, almost laughs at the scene around him.

One commenter joked that Freeman reacted to the song the way he did because he’s a father himself to a little boy named Charlie:

Freddie gets enough of this at home with Charlie… The ball field was his one safe spot.

And other fans added:

His reaction is the funniest thing I’ve seen in a long time.

One of the many reasons we love Freeman.

According to the Independent, the song was originally created by the Korean-based YouTube channel known as Pinkfong. The channel creates songs, dances, and fun videos for young children to enjoy.

The song was first shared with the world in 2015 and has since garnered 3.1 billion views, making it one of the Top 40 most-viewed videos ever on YouTube.

However, regardless of age, it seemed like most people at the July 29 game were pretty into it.
