I’m surprised this doesn’t happen more often, actually. There are like 250 throwbacks to a pitcher a game, minimum, games are long, guys get tired and there’s a lot of stuff to look at in a major league ballpark. Sometimes the routine stuff slips through the cracks.
Oh well. It didn’t seem to affect Chris Sale much as he dominated the Blue Jays. Maybe it even woke him up a little and gave him an extra bit of adrenaline?
