Ballplayers love their bubblegum and sunflower seeds. Keon Broxton loves bubblegum too much, and when it comes to seeds, you can always count on teammates tossing a few at the guy doing a mid-game interview.
When the A's defeated the Red Sox, 7-3, on Wednesday night, Brock Holt showed us a unique way to appreciate sunflower seeds.
At first glance, it looks like he's simply messing around on the dugout fence, but a different angle shows Holt lining up the seeds in a perfect row, then flicking them off one by one onto the field. The commentators claim it could be a superstition of some sort, which could be the case. Whatever works for him ... it just wasn't quite successful for his team on the field.
