The Orioles doused new manager Brandon Hyde to celebrate his first win
It's always special when a new manager picks up his first career win, even in baseball where they're able to pick up dozens of wins over the course of a 162-game season. On Friday, the Blue Jays celebrated manager Charlie Montoyo's first win with a clubhouse shower.
On Saturday, Brandon Hyde picked up his first win as the Orioles manager, defeating the Yankees, 5-3. After the game, the players gathered in the clubhouse showers to give their skipper the same honor their division rivals gave theirs.

Hyde will probably be sticky and smelly for a long time after this celebration, but maybe he won't be in any rush to shower that all away. That's the feel and smell of success.
