Hu’s on first? No, he’s the shortstop

So I get to the ballpark this morning and I ended up in an Abbott and Costello routine with Chien-Ming Wang.

Here’s how it went:

Wang: “The Dodgers have a player from Taiwan at shortstop.”

Me: “Oh yeah? Who’s that?”

Wang: “Hu.”

Me: “Right, that’s what I asked, who?”

Wang: “Hu.”

Me: “I’m asking you. Who is it?”

Wang (laughing): “His name is Hu.”

It turns out that the player is Chin-Lung Hu, who Wang knows from his Little League days in Taiwan. It was pretty funny for a few seconds. Bobby Abreu, who overheard the whole thing, was cracking up.
