The Best There Is, The Best There Was and The Best There Ever Will Be.
That’s right, Bret “Hitman” Hart — the Canadian wrestling icon — is an avid supporter of the 24-year-old left-hander.
Hart gave Borucki a shout out on Twitter Tuesday night before the rookie toed the rubber at Fenway Park against the Boston Red Sox.
Hey @ryan_borucki. I heard you’re a fan. I’m a fan of yours too. Good luck tonight against the Red Sox and I hope to see you pitch in person soon.
Borucki ended up tossing a strong outing, allowing two runs on three hits over 6.1 innings in the no-decision, an eventual Blue Jays loss. On the season, he owns a 4.26 ERA and 3.76 FIP over 14 starts and 76 innings.
He replied to Hart in a quote tweet Wednesday morning.
Thank you for the support, Hitman! Hopefully i’ll see you at a game soon. And by the way the Sharpshooter is still my favorite finisher of all time #BestThereEverWillBe https://t.co/vbvZHDqEGK
