Dangerously close MLB star believes he’s ablaze during Home Run Derby fireworks

The Home Run Derby is one of the most astonishing occasions of the year for Major League Baseball – maybe excessively energizing, assuming you ask Braves star Ronald Acuna.

Acuna, one of the occasion’s eight members, was in front of an audience as the players were being presented Monday night at Dodger Stadium before the celebrations started. As Jose Ramirez and Juan Soto — a first-round matchup — strolled across the stage to welcome one another, an impact of blazes went off right behind Acuna, who took off from the stage as though he naturally suspected he was ablaze.

Sailors star Julio Rodriguez, who was remaining close to him, highlighted the stage’s fireworks machine as everybody seemed to share a chuckle.

Then, as the last first-round matchup between Kyle Schwarber and Albert Pujols was declared, the machine went off once more – and Acuna, not having any of it, left once more, with Ramirez going along with him this time.

Acuna lost in the first round to Pete Alonso, the reigning two-time champion. However, Alonso was bested in the second round by Rodriguez, who put on a show – launching 32 dingers in round one and 31 in round two.

Rodriguez then faced Soto in the final round, where his magic ran out, losing to the 23-year-old superstar.
