Felix Hernandez and Beltre were teammates for five years, and we’re sure that tons of fun was had between the two during that span. But they’ve become only more entertaining from an outsider’s perspective since Beltre left Seattle, and boy have they had some classic moments over the years.
There was the “oh shit!” home run off Felix that Beltre couldn’t believe.

It’s a tradition unlike any other. Lots of MLB teams have their own version of Bark at the Park — the White Sox broke a world record with so many good dogs (1,122, to be exact) at their ballpark last year. The A’s, for their part, have a cooler way to have fun with their good dogs: surfing.

Have a separate budget to rent out wave pools, then buy a bunch of sunglasses that can fit the dogs’ heads, then hire Washed Out and Toro y Moi to write new chillwave songs to soundtrack the surfing footage, maybe buy Cheap Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping dog-friendly Tommy Bahama shirts. These are all free ideas, MLB. Use them.
