The MLB might want to rethink its strategy as it pertains to players wearing microphones during games following a moment of frustration from San Francisco Giants outfielder Joc Pederson over the weekend.
The league has produced more Mic’d Up content over the last few years as the concept does a lot for entertainment, especially given the advent of social media.
That isn’t to say Pederson was Mic’d Up when he dropped an F-bomb on live television during a game against the New York Yankees on Sunday. It’s just that it was so loud, he might have as well been wearing a mic.
The slugger had a big game against the Yankees on Saturday, scoring a homer along with two runs. But he couldn’t replicate the form in Sunday’s game as the Giants lost 0-6.
Pederson had a chance to get his team within a run during the sixth inning, with Ron Marinaccio stepping up to him. The pitcher’s fastball seemed like it would be perfect for a good whack but Pederson knew what the result would be as soon as he struck it and dropped an F-bomb that was loud enough to be caught on the broadcast.

This wasn’t a first for the player either.
The outfielder had a similar outburst while playing for Team Israel against the Dominican Republic during the World Baseball Classic last month.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
