Braves Are Unhappy With Top Prospect Because He Wears His Cap Tilted On His Head
According to Statista.com, the average age of a Major League Baseball fan is 57-years-old and it’s not hard to see why that is.
Case in point: Things like this that upset people in and around baseball.
Ronald Acuna is the Braves’ top prospect and has been ranked no worse than the No. 2 prospect in all of baseball. The guy is a clear stud and will be making millions fairly soon when he’s called into the majors later on this year.
Despite being a Major League stud in the making, the Atlanta Braves are extremely unhappy with the 20-year-old from Venezuela, not because of something controversial he said, but because he wears his hat in a way that they do not approve of.
“The Braves want Acuna to wear his hat straight and maintain a professional appearance while in uniform. But they do not want to change much about the fun-loving, flamboyant approach that has made him one of the game’s most exciting young players.
“The main thing he needs to remember is keep your head straight and respect [your surroundings],” Jones said. “Be humble, but a humble-cocky.”
Baseball has had a long history of cracking down on any player who attempts to show any signs of a personality. This is the very definition of a non-issue being turned into a faux outrage.
