This story is not Cardinals-related and for that, I apologize. I try to find Cardinals news for you all, being that this is a Cardinals blog and I assume that is why you might read it. Sometimes something so weird happens that it must be address, however. This is one of those times.
Trevor Bauer is a pitcher with the Cleveland baseball club. He is coming of a great year and is pitching well yet again, though maybe not quite to the level of 2018. His last game on July 28 did not go so well. Per Fangraphs, he pitched 4 1⁄3 innings and allowed eight runs, seven of them earned, on nine hits and four walks. He was likely frustrated and that likely frustration turned to obvious frustration when Cleveland manager Terry Francona walked out to remove him from the game.
Well, this is a first. Trevor Bauer chucked the baseball from the mound over the CF wall before Terry Francona arrived at the mound to make the pitching change.— Zack Meisel (@ZackMeisel) July 28, 2019
It something that has to be seen to be completely understood, I think. Luckily, we have a gif!
This is what Trevor Bauer just did to avoid getting pulled out of the game. (Via @Wheyen3) pic.twitter.com/ZwjGnDSNho— Devan Fink (@DevanFink) July 28, 2019
It is such a weird thing to do, but sharing weird baseball stuff is why I am here. And with that, I take my leave and direct you to the links...
