In the bottom of the third inning in a game between the Houston Astros and Detroit Tigers, Jose Altuve needed revenge at first base.

Old school baseball fans need to turn their eyes and completely ignore this headline. To them this sort of on-field messing around is complete blasphemy.

Oftentimes when a guy gets on first base he’ll have a nonchalant chat with the first-baseman. They’ll do it in a way that doesn’t draw attention, nor take anything away from the task at hand.

In Saturday’s game between the Houston Astros and Detroit Tigers, however, nonchalant wasn’t the word of the day.

Watch as Jose Altuve gets completely untucked by fellow Venezuelan Miguel Cabrera.

Altuve wouldn’t be outdone.

After giving a look of disgust, in a “come on man” type of way, he called time to adjust himself. This was only to plot his revenge on one of the greatest right-handed hitters in MLB history.
