PSA: Don't try to push Ronald Acuna Jr.'s hand off the bag unless you want to get playfully slapped
It's this: If you're going to try to nudge

We see this sort of play happen every now and then, when an overzealous baserunner slides too far past the bag or takes his fingertips off the bag ever so slightly. Arcia, however, was taking a page from the book Adrian Beltre helped write and continuing to try and nudge his hand off the bag even after time was called.
It didn't work before time was called, and it definitely didn't work after time was called. Lesson learned!
Adrian Garro joined MLB.com in 2016. Throughout his travels, both Bartolo Colon and Vin Scully have placed their hands on his shoulders. Not at the same time, though. That'd be amazing.
