“Napoli Schools Professor Tanaka”

In the 1970’s, Captain Lou Albano managed WWE Tag Team Champions Mr. Fuji and Professor Toru Tanaka. Both hailed from Japan, both were masters of the marital arts, and both threw ceremonial salt in their opponents’ face when the referee’s back was turned.

Last night in New York, Boston’s Mike Napoli swatted a belt-high fastball by Yankees’ ace Masahiro Tanaka fastball into the right field seats to give the Red Sox a 2-1 win over their hated rivals.

Here is a story about that moment.
