With the issue of his weight always a topic of conversation, the last thing Boston Red Sox third baseman Pablo Sandoval needed was this.
Oh dear god. The last thing in the world Pablo Sandoval needed was for this to happen.
With his Boston Red Sox in Toronto taking on the overpowering Toronto Blue Jays, the backup third-baseman took one of his mighty swings in the second inning.
There was just one small problem with that mighty swing.
His belt literally buckled under the pressure:
Pablo Sandoval's belt has officially given up…https://t.co/DGxHAWpCWy

Constantly battling weight issues, it seems Boston writers will have that much more to discuss about the Red Sox backup third baseman.
Of course, Twitter responded appropriately to the footage:
Pablo Sandoval just broke his belt on a swing. I love Pablo Sandoval.

Attention gif-makers. Pablo Sandoval just popped his belt on a swing and miss. You're welcome.

Trying so hard to keep it together right now I feel like panda's belt

Sometimes, despite the money, it’s always better staying where you’re welcomed most. In San Francisco Panda could literally take the entire season off, show up for October and welcome the cheers.
In Boston, life must be miserable.
