The Baltimore Orioles have new twists on classic celebrations.
After James McCann’s double in the fourth inning of the Orioles’ game against the Oakland Athletics, McCann took second and made a quick splash motion, while his teammates in the dugout spit water in imitation, well, a sprinkler system. .
The Orioles seem to be having a lot of fun this year as their rebuild continues to grow and the team looks to build on an amazing 83-79 record last season.
Their “sprinkler system” is the second time in as many nights that the Orioles have debuted a fun new celebration. After first baseman Ryan Mountcastle hit a home run Monday, he drew water from a funnel.
And yes, it was a water bottle that Mountcastle was drinking from. Teammate Austin Hays later drank from the same wit after his home run.
Pitcher Kyle Gibson confirmed to reporters after the game that the sprinkler is for extra-base hits and what Orioles players call the “home run hose” is reserved for, well, home runs.
