Baseball's viral sensation Gerardo Parra, of World Series and "Baby Shark" fame, signed with Japan's Yomiuri Giants on Wednesday.

Parra will always be remembered by Washington and baseball fans alike for his cheery personality, but more importantly for the phenomenon he started at Nationals Park during the Nats' 2019 campaign and subsequent World Series victory. 

It started back in June, when Parra first changed his walkup song to "Baby Shark." After that, it only grew.

By the end of July, Nationals Park had gotten the hint and the path to the eventual World Series premiere of "Baby Shark" had begun.

Here's a video from just two days later, when Parra stepped in to pinch-hit.

Then, after Parra had a clutch grand slam on Sept. 28, which helped the Nationals secure the home-field advantage in the NL Wild Card, Washington finally made it to the NLCS and "Baby Shark" took over Nationals Park in the first divisional championship series game at the satdium.


Here's another angle from Game 3 of the NLCS. The sound of the shark chomps is deafening in this video from the same night.

And finally, the moment we all hoped would come: "Baby Shark" takes on the World Series.

And, finally, the last "Baby Shark" in Nationals Park, possibly ever, at the Game 7 watch party.
