Did Yasiel Puig give Hyun-Jin Ryu a sack whack? (GIF)

Yasiel Puig and Hyun-Jin Ryu have a really entertaining relationship. The two Los Angeles Dodgers were caught having a tickle fight during a game last month, and they were messing around again on Thursday. Only this time, things got a little more rough.

Puig was standing next to Ryu when Ryu decided to give him a quick smack to the face. It looked like it caught Puig off-guard, so he figured he’d respond by going below the belt. Was that a sack whack? It’s hard to tell because it was out of the frame, but that looked like a classic sack whack.


All this and it’s only May? Things could get ugly between these two by the All-Star break.

Yasiel Puig and Hyun-Jin Ryu had a tickle fight (GIF)

Yasiel-Puig-tickle-fightYou know how we know things are perfectly fine between Yasiel Puig and his Los Angeles Dodgers teammates? Because if they weren’t, I highly doubt he’d be engaging in tickle fights before the game.

A tickle fight between two grown men is the ultimate sign of friendship — right? Puig and Dodgers starting pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu shared an intimate moment before LA took on the Arizona Diamondbacks on Sunday. We’ve seen a lot of weird stuff over the years, but this is near the top of the list.

Remember that meeting Puig supposedly called with his teammates a couple weeks ago to ask how he could improve? The first order of business must have been more tickle fights.
