Kris Bryant couldn't help but tickle old pal Starlin Castro when the Cubs' and Marlins' benches cleared
Old friendships die hard, even when you're separated. This principle was surely the case on Tuesday night, when Marlins second baseman Starlin Castro was reunited with several of his former Cubs teammates for a game at Wrigley Field.
During Kris Bryant's sensational rookie season in 2015, he grew close to Castro, so even though the Cubs and Marlins' benches emptied in the fourth inning on Tuesday following Derek Dietrich's collision with Victor Caratini at home plate, Bryant couldn't resist messing with Castro:
Thankfully, Bryant's tickling seemed to help both sides relieve the tension and nothing else came of the dispute.

We can all learn from @KrisBryant_23 and diffuse volatile situations before they happen.

That's the classic effect of Fluffy Fingers. Smart play by Bryant to deploy this tactic.
