Some of the motion from Thursday’s “Field of Dreams” game between the Cubs and Reds appeared to be reserved for Chicago’s dugout.
Prior to the beginning of the game, the announcers mirrored on the crew uniforms, with the cameras panning to the Cubs dugout. There, first base coach Mike Napoli was seen strolling about earlier than doing a cup verify on catcher Yan Gomes, attacking his groin space with a massage gun.
Although it’s a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it type of second, Twitter naturally had a lot to say on the matter.
“Mike Napoli cup checking Yan Gomes the underrated part of this, one user remarked, while another said, “Mike Napoli with a timely massage gun attack during the romantic intro of the #MLBatFieldOfDreams game. Hilarious.”
The Cubs went on to defeat the Reds, 4-2, with Chicago persevering with its three-game sequence towards Cincinnati on Saturday evening.
It stays to be seen if Napoli, a former first baseman and catcher, will carry alongside his toy for the Cubs’ upcoming highway journey to Cincy.
