Yasiel Puig did not hold back after launching a home run against the Indians, and flipped off the hometown crowd as he ran the bases.
Yasiel Puig is obviously a popular name in baseball, so whenever someone of his stature does something, let’s say not-so-nice, on the field, people will surely take notice. That was definitely the case on Tuesday night when the Los Angeles Dodgers faced off with the Cleveland Indians.
After launching his 10th home run of the season for the Dodgers in the top of the second inning, Puig did a little extra as he rounded the bases in Cleveland. The homer gave the Dodgers a 2-0 lead over the Indians, and he showed his displeasure to one of the fans in the crowd after he crossed home plate.
Who knows who the fan was, what was said, or why Puig decided to take action on it. All I know is the picture is almost too perfect to put into words, so just take a look at Puig flipping off the fans at Progressive Field.
There’s some unique timing to the moment, which could surely bring up some good memes from the picture. The biggest possibility for it is because it comes just one day after the fans in Cleveland had their hearts ripped out when their Cleveland Cavaliers lost in the NBA Finals to California’s own Golden State Warriors.
No matter how the moment happened, or how the picture gets used, just enjoy the fact that there’s now a picture out there of Yaisel Puig beautifully flipping you off.
