And they said the World Baseball Classic didn’t matter.
I would’ve expected this in the game between the United States and Mexico last night, their history has way more instances of hostility than with the peace-loving Canadians.
Mexico got upset after Canadian catcher Chris Robinson, bunted for a single with Canada leading 9-3. Within the MLB culture, there is an unwritten rule that frowns on players bunting when their team has a huge lead, but in the WBC every run counts and can aid in settling tiebreakers, so the Mexicans anger was misplaced.
I’ll let the video pick it up from there, it was pretty exciting check it out.
