Henry Owens spent part of the game taped to a pole in the dugout

Henry Owens had a pretty good spot in the dugout to watch Sunday's game against the Phillies at Fenway Park:


So, uh … yeah.

We're going to assume this had something to do with rookie hijinks, the usually tomfoolery teams get up to with their late-season callups, and that the team was trying to recreate this classic Pedro Martinez scene. It probably wasn't solely Hanley Ramirez trying to keep Owens still while he measured his feet again.

The tape around the mouth might seem a bit much at first glance, but Owens is a noted fan of The Smiths, so maybe the dugout heard one too many renditions of "How Soon Is Now?"

 I am human and I need to pitch, just like everybody else does ...
