Chris Johnson and Terry Pendleton have made up

We now have more clarity on that weird incident from Saturday night that produced this GIF:

source:  According to MLB.com’s Mark Bowman, Braves first base coach Terry Pendleton has been warning third baseman Chris Johnson all season about the dangers of recklessly throwing his batting helmet and was rightfully furious after getting struck by one of Johnson’s reckless helmet throws following a groundout on Saturday night. The two have since apologized to each other and Johnson acknowledged to David O’Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Sunday morning that he can behave like “a nut job sometimes.”

Johnson is not in the Braves’ lineup for Sunday’s season-finale, but that’s due to a sore shoulder.
