Walk-offs are one of the few times when Major League Baseball players can truly let their freak flag fly and show the personality typically reserved for Players Weekend. This a chance to make artistic choices as to how they will celebrate a dramatic victory.
Chicago White Sox infielder Yolmer Sanchez has seized on the opportunity and created something beautiful: the self-inflicted Gatorade shower.
Here he is in May, executing a brilliant idea.
And here he is Monday, following a Matt Davidson walk-off bomb.
Oh yeah. There’s no reason a man shouldn’t get wet and wild following a dinger if he so chooses — even if he had nothing to do with it. Sanchez is a pioneer and my respect for him grows by the shower.
