Baseball is known for it’s exhausting list of unwritten rules, and last night independent leaguer Starlin Rodriguez of the Barrie Baycats broke a healthy chunk of them in one of the most disrespectful at bats you’ll ever see.
After standing at home plate and admiring a 2-run shot until it cleared the fence, Rodriguez launched his bat about 20-feet into the air for some extra sauce. He wasn’t done. After slow trotting around the bases, he shoved the catcher as he was about to cross the plate.
If Rodriguez never makes it to the MLB, he might have a shot in the WWE. There’s no way this guy doesn’t get one in the earhole next time up.
This is the controversial 2-run homer from Starlin Rodriguez in the 7th that broke a 3-3 tie, gave @IBLBaycats the lead for good in their series clinching game, and drew the ire of the Panthers. #IBLFinals #IBL100 #batflip pic.twitter.com/kWxuxO6Z7U
