Mooney swatted away Baum’s hand and both dugouts nearly cleared. But luckily smarter heads prevailed as Clemson catcher Chris Okey and others walked Baum back to the Tigers’ dugout, while USC players did the same to Mooney.
Not sure what game this person was watching, but there was no spikes up, no swatting away of the hand, and no walking of Mooney back to the dugout. It was Espisito that walked down Baum (it actually appeared that he stepped over Mooney to get to Baum from my angle) and was walked back to the dugout. I was hoping Espisito would put a little respect into the kid, but he played it cooler than I would have.
