Bartolo Colon Slaps A Small Child At The Home Run Derby (GIF)
How do you celebrate an athletic achievement? Oakland A’s pitcher Bartolo Colon celebrates by giving children the Ike Turner treatment.
That’s right, Colon was so excited that his teammate Yoenis Cespedes won the home run derby that he slapped a small child…accidentally. Either way, it was pretty hard, and this poor kid has to be left smarting.
On a related note, how the hell is Bartolo Colon at the All-Star game? He was out of baseball in 2010, and he’s had a sudden career resurgence at the age of 40. Is this strange to anyone else? Bartolo currently has an ERA of 2.70 which is his lowest ERA since 2002.
On a related note, Colon tested positive for steroids in 2012, and ol’ Bartolo has been named to a list of players tied to a drug ring in Miami. So that happened.
