Yesterday, in the bottom of the 9th, Lonnie Chisenhall hit a single that clinched the win for the Cleveland Indians. His teammates mobbed him following his heroic hit, but then something weird happened. (It happens at the 55-second mark.)
WHA?! See it again in GIF form.
So who is the groper? Can we identify this frisky ballplayer?
Next, by going frame by frame, we can figure out that his jersey number is probably 9.
Confirmation: Red armband, glasses, Number 9.
End of story, right? Well maybe. But once the scrum died down, Jack Hannahan didn't immediately head back to the dugout. He... Uh... Lingered.
This totally real, completely non-doctored* photo is of the dirt around third base from a game earlier this season when Jack Hannahan had started.
There does look to be a second groper, but he ends up going with a "regular" butt tap.
