Dan Vogelbach, an old friend, is the biggest, rowdiest baseball boy. I don’t fault him for it. But sometimes he can get a little too rowdy!
Like when he tried to score on a sac fly to Seiya Suzuki, who has a hose, and threw out Vogelbach by several steps. In the ensuing tangle with Willson Contreras, Vogelbach got pissed off – was it the friendly pats from Contreras? – and toss Willson’s mask. Then things got hot:

Seriously. Chill, Daniel. Willson Contreras is simply a kind, caring, and compassionate man. He wanted to know that you were OK. And then you threw his stuff.
There was a very minor skirmish that ensued, but it was nothing too spicy or interesting. Maybe the most interesting thing of all was that Vogelbach was on third base in the first place with a triple! Also, Keegan Thompson trying to conceal his laughter as he walked off the field was also excellent.
UPDATE: Some explanation on the incident from Willson Contreras here, who confirmed it was basically what it looked like: he was just trying to be nice, and Vogelbach overreacted. Too rowdy!
