Houston Astros’ All-Star* slugger Alex Bregman knows a thing or two about the “unwritten rules” of baseball.
After all, he broke one of them in dramatic fashion after homering in Game 6 of the 2019 World Series when he carried his bat all the way down to first base with him.
Bregman’s favorite “unwritten rule” of baseball, however, is the one where pitchers police the game by plunking batters for doing, in his words, “stupid stuff.”
Looks like Bregman’s October 4, 2019 appearance on Pardon My Take is going to come back to haunt him in a big way this coming season.
“One of our favorite things to ask baseball players is, we’re obsessed with ‘unwritten rules.’ What’s your favorite ‘unwritten rule?'” Bregman was asked.
I like all of them, honestly. I kind of like the way the game has always policed itself,” Bregman replied. “I think that if you do some stupid stuff on the field, either you or one of your teammates is gonna get hit for how you’re acting. I kind of like that. I kind of like those rules.”
“Have you had a moment where you knew going up to the plate that you were most likely going to get hit?” the host followed up.
“No, I haven’t in the big leagues,” Bregman replied.
Something tells me that is going to change in the very near future.
