MIGUEL MONTERO is the catcher for the Arizona Diamondbacks. And on Monday night, he decided between two bats by MAKING OUT WITH them. You can check out the video and see for yourself. Even the announcers were confused.
After the game, Montero explained that he was using his tongue to test the GRAIN of the bats, because he couldn’t feel it through his batting gloves.
Apparently it’s better if the wood grain is sticking out a little bit, because it puts extra spin on the ball when you hit it.
