The Question: MLB infielder Pablo Sandoval was nicknamed after what animated movie?
Fantastic Mr. Fox
Kung Fu Panda
Pablo Sandoval earned the nickname “Kung Fu Panda” from his teammates Rich Aurilia and Barry Zito while playing for the San Francisco Giants in 2008. Aurilia, who had recently watched the movie with his young children, compared Sandoval to the film’s title character after he jumped over the opposing catcher to avoid a tag. Zito subsequently used the nickname in a post-game interview, and it stuck.
The correct answer is Kung Fu Panda.
