Alex Bregman: ‘I want to be the LeBron James of baseball’

There are few similarities between baseball and basketball players. NBA players are actually encouraged to show off their personalities. They do fun things like hold All-Star drafts, wear wacky clothing and call each other out on Twitter constantly.

Major League Baseball players act as though they are prohibited from showing any emotion on the field. If you flip a bat or cheer after hitting a home run, expect a fastball to the ribs. The next time a baseball player wears an outfit that gets people talking will be the first.

Houston Astros infielder Alex Bregman is looking to change that. He told Joon Lee of Bleacher Report that he wants to be “the LeBron James of baseball.”

A grandstanding narcissist who shakes down team owners the way team owners shake down cities?
