Perhaps a new tradition has been born as well. The idea came from backup catcher Francisco Pena. "It's just a dance, man," he said to MLB.com's Joe Trezza. "We just made it up. Now we got to keep it going."

Molina himself led the conga line behind Dexter Fowler when Fowler clubbed a dinger of his own in the sixth:
