MIAMI—A day after players from the Dominican Republic engaged in some no-holds-barred celebrations at Marlins Park in response to their 3-1 World Baseball Classic victory against Team USA, it became apparent that some American players weren’t overly thrilled with the spectacle.
Cincinnati Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips, known for his demonstrative nature on the field, said the celebrations were a topic of discussion among some of his teammates. Although Phillips considered several sequences over the top by typical baseball standards, he had no objections to the way the Dominicans reacted.
“Some players had something to say about it, but I can only speak for myself,’’ Phillips told reporters before Team USA’s elimination game against Puerto Rico on Friday night. “It was cool. I’m a flashy person myself, so I kind of like this stuff.
Seems like the US players are not happy the DR tried and wanted to win.
