  • Gerardo Parra leaves Nationals, MLB to play in Japan for Yomiuri Giants

Outfielder Gerardo Parra agreed to a contract with the Yomiuri Giants, the Japanese professional baseball team announced on Wednesday. The contract includes a vesting option for 2021 worth $3 million.

Parra, 32, slashed.234/.293/.391 last season in 119 games with the Giants and Nationals, but his biggest contribution was easily his introduction of the popular children's anthem during games in Washington. "There wasn't a whole lot of - he made it fun for this team", Nationals manager Dave Martinez said to NBC Sports Washington in October. "Before the game, I tried merengue, reggaeton, hip-hop, then I said, 'You know what, I want to put in Baby Shark.' I'm happy for that".

Parra became a notable player nationally after he changed his walk-up song to "Baby Shark" after seeing his 2-year-old daughter dance to it.

By the time the Nats reached the playoffs, the song and associated clapping had grown into a Full-Fledged Happening and rallying cry, with the home crowds chirping along enthusiastically. In addition to posting a much-improved.250/.300/.447 batting line in 204 plate appearances with the eventual World Series champions, Parra won the hearts of Nationals fans when adopting "Baby Shark" as his walkup theme. "He's the Parra Shark".
