When stretching pregame goes wrong… uh this maybe going too far

In Major League Baseball players like to get loose before a game and sometimes it involves stretching, but in one case a spectator says it has gone too far.

A Houston Astros baseball player was caught on camera getting stretched before a ball game hosted by the Minnesota Twins at Target Field in Minneapolis May 31. The stretching position between the athlete and his trainer is boardering into inappropriate a spectator questioned on Twitter.


What the heck is going on with #BaseBall these days? @Twins @astros @stephenasmith @MLBNetwork Now I like a good show but this is too much!” Tawana Terrell tweeted.

Foul or fair? Do you think this stretching position is a little more than a stretching position, one that should not be performed before a public family event like a baseball game?
