It’s something we’ve seen a few times this year but nothing quite like this. Of course MLB now has the “Buster Posey” rule so that you don’t get catchers squaring off directly against runners coming into home.
For those unaware, you have to slide before the bag and touch the bag. What happens after that is just part of the game, this though is disgusting.
This isn’t the first time Utley has done this in fact here’s another from a month ago.
