A now-disabled Twitter account that claimed Jose Altuve was tipped off by a buzzer during his walk-off home run during last year’s American League Championship off New York Yankees flame throwing closer Aroldis Chapman.
The evidence that he was wearing a buzzer?
As he approaches home plate after his pennant-clinching homer, Altuve clearly and demonstrably tells his awaiting teammates not to yank off his jersey.
When asked why during an on-field interview with Fox Sports, Altuve laughs and says, “I don’t know. I’m too shy. Last time they did that, I got in trouble with my wife.”
The accusation gained enough traction that Altuve and MLB felt compelled to respond.
