The collision at home between Jake Marisnick and Jonathan Lucroy during the Astros and Angels match at Minute Maid Park has caught the attention of all baseball.
Baseball players like Yadier Molina went with everything against Marisnick when calling the dirty play and Astros players defended their teammates back and forth.
Marisnick himself also made his own social media publication to explain what had happened.
Here´s his post:
Through my eyes I thought the play was going to end up on the outside of the plate. I made a split second decision at full speed to slide head first on the inside part of the plate. That decision got another player hurt and I feel awful. I hope nothing but the best for @JLucroy20— Jake Marisnick (@JSMarisnick) July 8, 2019
Some players like Yadier Molina and Angels manager Brad Ausmus have asked MLB to suspend Marisnick because of the play.
