Soto has a habit of being rather flamboyant in the batter's box. He'll jump out of the way of pitches that are nowhere near him, he'll really dance around with his spikes in the dirt and, in between pitches, he'll grab his crotch while adjusting himself in a way that's tough to ignore. His actions have been dubbed the "Soto shuffle."
It was only a matter of time before a pitcher decided to respond to Juan Soto for, well, being Juan Soto.
In the top of the fifth, after forcing the 20-year-old Nationals stud to ground out, Cardinals pitcher Miles Mikolas looked over at Washington's dugout as Soto trotted over and aggressively grabbed his junk.
Oddly enough, no feelings were hurt and neither of the benches cleared in an attempt to display some false sense of machismo.
