Ronald Acuña has socks with Ozzie Albies' face on them
The Braves are in the postseason for the first time in a while thanks to their dynamic duo of Ronald Acuña and Ozzie Albies. Not only have both players enjoyed incredible breakout seasons, they've also developed a really awesome friendship as the faces of a resurgent Braves team. Look at these cool dudes.
But while the young phemons may be mature beyond their years at the plate and in the field, outside the lines, they're definitely full of youthful energy.

Albies' Instagram account in particular is a treasure trove of playful banter between these goofballs. Before yesterday's NLDS Game 1, Albies uploaded a video of Acuña to his Instagram story that showed the favorite for NL Rookie of the Year rocking some very recognizable socks.
That Acuña loves Albies enough to literally have his buddy's face on his socks might be the most heartwarming story of the 2018 postseason. The only thing that would make this any better would be if Albies got a pair of Acuña socks and the two of them took a picture together in them.
