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.

Although no formal announcement was made at the stadium, the home crowd seemed to understand the situation and gave Jackson a standing ovation as he trotted off the field for his last time as a Detroit Tiger.

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