From Lo Viste To I See You
With the arrival of Hanley Ramirez from the Miami Marlins to the Dodgers almost two weeks ago we not only got a batting champion and all-star, but he also brought to L.A. I See You. A hand gesture where he takes his thumb and index finger and puts them together in an oval shape and puts them over his eyes. Anytime he would get a hit and get on base, he would make this gesture. Before you knew it Matt Kemp and Andre Ethier were seen doing it and a new sensation was born. Announcers were quickly trying to figure out what that was about. In a post game interview they asked him and he simply said I See You. From that moment I See You has been sweeping across twitter and fans everywhere as well as shirt designers. I too came up with a design and had to move quickly since I would be attending a game last week and wanted to show him and get his thoughts.
As he came in from batting practice I called him and told him I had something for him. I pulled out the shirt from my bag and showed him. I wish I had recorded it because his face lit up when he saw the shirt and he said “Perfect, That’s Perfect”. I asked him if it was still called Lo Viste, which was another hand gesture he would do in Miami. He said no, it was called I See You. He told me to add I See You across the bottom, which I had planned to, but I wanted to make sure I had the correct name. I asked to get a picture of him holding the shirt and as I did so did some of the other MLB press that was in the dugout but he told them “First I have to tweet it”. He let me get my picture and as he walked away he thanked me and said ” I am going to put this on right now”. A few moments the Dodgers put the image up on their Instagram.
Since that game I know Hanley has been using the shirt as his warm up shirt and wears it under his game Jersey. He was spotted on the Dodgers pre game show wearing it.
Thanks to Jon SooHoo for first two Pics and Cody from twitter on the last one
