These two baseball players are great friends. According to rumors, Ozzie was consoling Ronald upon hearing about his mother’s death during the game. Some debate this, because Ronald mother’s death hasn’t been confirmed.
In any case, it’s a wonderful display of tenderness between two men, despite many comments by detractors.

In defense of the commentators, they probably didn’t know about the death and had to fill air time by saying something about this scene that the camera was filming. And what they said wasn’t horrible.
They just said that Acuna was probably stressed and his best bud said, “Come over here…I got ya.” And indeed, that’s probably the way it went. How cool that these two guys are comfortable enough to have such a public display of brotherly friendship. Its a good thing for the world to see.
