KC Mice

There’s some impressive pitching from Casey Mize in this clip, and some impressive names as well. Mize gets called Casey Meyers, which is a perfectly acceptable name for a pitcher, and the he gets the phonetic treatment. First he’s called KC Mice (there’s a solution for that), then the closed captioning decides KC Mei’s is better (Overwatch fans?), before calling him Casey Eyes in a clear nod to one of the country’s finest ophthalmic research facilities. The system is reeling now, and in a Rumpelstiltskin-eque fit of desperation it throws out the nonsensical moniker KC My’s.
