Just because MLB fans will have to wait out the recently-imposed hiatus to witness pitchers around the league get revenge on the Houston Astros for the team's sign-stealing ventures doesn't mean that MLB The Show gamers can't set the standard in the meantime. Check out this hilarious clip that depicts an umpire clapping after Clayton Kershaw drills Jose Altuve on the shoulder in this simulated game.
Okay, maybe this shouldn't be the standard, but you get the point.
What kind of glitch is this though?!
Kershaw is undoubtedly one of the hurlers that is most justified in wanting to extend a bit of revenge on the Astros. After all, Houston didn't swing-and-miss on any of his breaking pitches in Game 5 of the 2017 World Series.
Though Kershaw was a great choice for who would bean Altuve, the only thing that would've made the ump clapping even more hilarious is if whistleblower Mike Fiers was on the bump.
