Chicago Cubs pitcher Ryan Dempster is probably the Darrell Hammond of Major League Baseball. No one can do impersonations like Dempster. Most athletes struggle to even get a half-way decent soundbite out that isn’t one of these dumb-you-down platitudes: “it is what it is,” “we’re just focused on ourselves,” “i’m just happy to be here, and I’m working hard,” “we don’t look ahead, it’s a one game season,” (alright I’ll stop before you throw up)
But Dempster is witty and funny and can even mimic others, including legendary announcer Harry Caray.
