Baseball Player Gets Traded In The Middle Of The Game, Receives Standing Ovation

This is not something you see every day.

In the top of the 7th inning of Thursday night’s White Sox-Tigers game, Detroit outfielder Austin Jackson was taken out of the game after news broke that he was part of a three-team trade and would be dealt to the Seattle Mariners.

And as he entered the dugout, Jackson was welcomed with a line of goodbye hugs from his Detroit teammates.
