I don't get it. Why would his teammates do that to him?

It's just a joke, because it's his first MLB home run.  Notice they did eventually congratulate him.

Yes look and read about it a few years ago when it was brought back after someone on Boston or NY heard about it then started it up again. It was stopped because it meant nothing and everyone knew they would congratulate them later.

Maybe you should show where its such a tradition when they didn't even do it for Rick Mahler hitting his home run against the mets as a pinch hitter to tie the game.

It was never tradition, it was a prank like the hot foot.

Whoops and it was Rick Camp not Mahler but holds true for both first and only Major league homeruns they hit.

Contrary to what your incredibly broken brain believes, "tradition" does not mean it has to happen every time no matter what (as demonstrated in the third link I posted), but rather that it would happen under ordinary circumstances. I would not expect it to happen for a pinch hit homer that ties the game, because I'm actually capable of reasoning and thinking.

Oh look, here's the Braves doing it for Francoeur's fourth homer in 2005, complete with Frenchy saying "It never gets old." I didn't realize the Braves were still in Boston then.

Or, wait, was that BEFORE it got "rediscovered"? Or is 2005 considered "a few years ago" in your universe?

Someone else got it earlier this year too.  Saw it live and it was also green lit on Fark.....forget who it was, he got the silent treatment, grabbed a bag of sunflower seeds and started celebrating himself....that was funny.

Yes it was during the red Sox return to winning, but let's not act like it was a huge tradition if its not done to everyone.

And yes my timelines are way off usually as the wife reminds me constantly.

Who knew it was so hard to just write "I was wrong. Oops."

Fascinating.

J.J. Hardy of the Orioles - his first HR of the season back in June. The announcers even call it before it happens.

Huh.  On my "steamingpile is a running joke here" bingo card I had "randomly blames something on a Latino player", but not "is incredibly wrong but keeps posting like evidence isn't a thing".

By the way: Book quote with a story about Mel Parnell getting the silent treatment in Chicago after hitting his first career home run off Lou Kretlow... in September, 1952.

So, the bar is now 1952.  Anyone find an even older example of the silent treatment after a first home run?

I think Old Hoss Radbourn used to give opposing hitters "the groinal haymaker treatment" after a home run.

chimp_ninja: keeps posting like evidence


At first I missed the word "like" here and thought you made a hilarious joke. I was like, "haha, he doesn't post evidence!" Then I had to reread it.

Still funny though.

chimp_ninja: So, the bar is now 1952. Anyone find an even older example of the silent treatment after a first home run?


You don't understand: it doesn't matter when they first did it. What matters is in 1989 the entire league got together and said "we will not do this prank that is definitely not a tradition ANY MORE. And also none of us will talk about it ever again."

But then those terrible Red Sox did it last year when Kevin Youkilis hit his first homer in 2004 a couple of years back and now all the poseurs just copy them AND THEY DON'T TAKE THE GAME SERIOUSLY.

Also, please note that if you find any evidence of the silent treatment between 1989 & 2004 I will need a few minutes to adjust my timeline, like a sane & totally correct person often does.

(Also, I just want to point out that when the Braves did it in 2005, Julio Franco was on the team. Julio Franco who was 30 in 1989. He must've been scandalized.)

FDR Jones: What are they going to do next, short sheet his bed?


Well for most that haven't gone past high school varsity baseball; there are quite a number of things "rookies" end up doing. Most can be theme oriented, I dressed as the Lion from wizard of Oz; I had to wear the entire outfit for a 4 1/2 hour bus ride in a bus that smelled like someone took a shiat and placed it in the vent system, so naturally it was hot as hell and smelled like greased dead shiat all while dressed in an outfit that gave no comfort when it was time to use the bathroom.

/Hazing? LOL there is no hazing in baseball, fact I punched a hole in the mouth of the costume just so I could have a smoke; unfortunately I had to pay the $55 deposit because we returned the costume damaged.
//No the smoke didn't cause the damage or me putting a hole in its mouth; its a whole another story, involving beans and southern comfort.
