Kevin Millar has worn many hats throughout his baseball profession.

A reliable first baseman with pop for the Pink Sox and three different MLB franchises, Millar’s knack for reeling off fixed commentary made him a key clubhouse presence — and a pure for on-air and different broadcast alternatives as soon as he retired.

However the 51-year-old Millar may need a much more profitable profession as a fortune teller, given the spectacular prediction he tossed out on Monday night time.

Entering into the Pink Sox broadcast sales space for Boston’s highway collection towards the Houston Astros, Millar provided up an optimistic outlook for Sox outfielder Adam Duvall as he stepped into the batter’s field within the high of the primary inning.

“He’s going deep,” Millar mentioned of Duvall. “This isn’t an excellent matchup for [Houston starter Christian] Javier. I’m telling you, Duvall — that is that final six weeks [of the season] the place he will get going and will get homer-hot. However I’m gonna name proper now, early within the sport, I do know with two outs … we’re doing it proper now. Duvall goes deep.”

“Alright, you’re a courageous man,” Pink Sox play-by-play man Dave O’Brien mentioned of Duvall’s prediction.

Duvall, who stepped to the plate with runners on the corners and two out within the inning, entered Monday with 174 residence runs on his resume, together with three seasons with 30+ dingers.

“It’s cozy on the market to left [field] in these Crawford containers,” O’Brien mentioned to Millar. “I do know you’re eyeing these proper now.”

“It makes you need to go get a bat, OB. I’m telling you,” Millar responded.

Simply two pitches after Millar’s preliminary prediction, Duvall deposited a pitch from Javier properly past the Crawford containers in left area.

Duvall’s three-run shot traveled 408 toes, giving Boston an early 3-0 lead and making a frenzy within the Pink Sox broadcast sales space.

Take a look at Millar’s name beneath:

“What!?” Millar mentioned as quickly as Duvall made contact.

“Kevin Millar – stick round! Pink Sox lead it, 3-0,” O’Brien added as Duvall rounded the bases. “And Millar referred to as it seconds earlier than it occurred!”

“I’m telling you, OB, that’s simply not an amazing matchup,” Millar mentioned. “We get a giant pull right-handed energy in Adam Duvall. … I do know it felt bizarre. It was the primary inning with two outs, however I needed to go on the market and do it. It simply felt proper at the moment.”

Throughout his taking part in days, Millar’s feedback helped encourage the “Cowboy Up” mantra in 2003 and the Pink Sox’ assured mindset throughout their early deficit towards the Yankees through the 2004 ALCS.

Because the 2023 Pink Sox look to climb again into playoff competition, possibly the staff ought to maintain Millar within the sales space for extra good luck during the last 5 weeks of the season.
