Apparently, Millennials can take something as good as baseball and act like petulant brats about it. During a spring training game between the New York Mets and the Houston Astros on Thursday, 30-year-old Mets leftfielder, Yoenis Cespedes, decided that a ball…laying next to a wall…sitting in the dirt, was just too much for him. The umpire, rightly, was having none of his antics and showed Cespedes how to pick up a ball.
Cespedes then went on to pick up a sitting baseball with his glove, rather than his bare hand. C’mon, guy. This is basic stuff.
You can watch the entire thing here:
The Astros hitter, A.J. Reed, was clearly confounded by the inaction and slowly ran the bases, getting the team a home run.
