The clip went viral, receiving more than 34 million views on Facebook and several more elsewhere.
On Tuesday night, ‘Stare Down Sammy’ was back for more. He’s here at TD Ameritrade Park, fresh new haircut and all, and he’s turned into a bit of a local celebrity. Sammy was interviewed on the ESPN broadcast by Kaylee Hartung, and as usual, he nailed it. He also made it up on stadium videoboard, where he triumphed in, you guessed it, a staring contest.
