Eagle-eyed commenter Amanda noticed something at the end of last night’s game that we missed.
After Sam Fuld crossed the plate scoring the winning run, we saw the usual home plate celebratory pile. But then BJ Upton did something very strange. He took Fuld’s belt off and ran off with the belt.
Fack the Heck? We have seen a lot of strange things on the baseball field before, but we have never seen that. Even Ben Zobrist has that look of amused confusion.
Prior to leaving the pile, as Fuld and his teammates get up to walk back to the dugout, you can even see Upton still on his knees yanking at the belt.
Anybody know what’s going on here?
