Reds, MLB teams pay homage to solar eclipse with lyrical tribute

MLB teams love having fun on Twitter. This time the Reds started a thread.

Using a gif of first baseman Joey Votto winking before July’s All-Star Game in Miami, they captioned it with lyrics from Bonnie Tyler’s “Total Eclipse of the Heart.”

Monday, of course, is the total solar eclipse across the country.

The rest of baseball chimed in.

And I need you more than ever! 🎵
