Carlos Lee Literally Holds Stephen Strasburg On First Base

DC Sports Nexus ---- Sunday, August 5, 2012

During Sunday's game against the Marlins, Stephen Strasburg hit a 2 run RBI single.  While Stras was standing on first base, instead of holding him on, Carlos Lee played behind the pitcher.  Strasburg chose not to steal.

So on the next play, Carlos Lee played behind Strasburg again, this time sneaking up closer to him. Lee then put his hand in Strasburg's back pocket to literally "hold" him on.  Strasburg swatted away Lee's hand, and after the  next pitch both Strasburg & Lee were laughing and smiling.

Here is the hold and the swat:
