Hunter Pence Steps to Plate with Doughnut Weight on Bat (Pictures)
There are a lot of things that could have contributed to Hunter Pence having a mind lapse during Monday night’s Phillies-Rockies game. For one, Pence is still new to Philadelphia after being traded at the deadline. Perhaps his nerves are still acting up a bit. Also, the game had gone to extra innings. Pence, along with everyone else, may have been tired and ready to call it a night. Whatever the case, it’s pretty amusing to see someone stroll to the plate with a doughnut still on the bat.
Imagine no one said anything to Pence and he ripped one into the gap? Now that would be impressive. Earlier in the same night we saw a player hit a broken bat home run and another home run leave seam marks on a woman’s knee after it bounced off her and back into play. No need to feel bad, Hunter. It was just one of those nights where strange things seem to happen.
Chest bump to Big League Stew for the pictures.
