In the middle of blasting 12 homers in Monday’s Home Run Derby, young Orioles star Manny Machado stopped to have a snack.
With MLB changing the derby format to include timed rounds, each player is granted one timeout per round. Most contestants use their break to grab a drink, wipe the sweat off their face and give their arms a break. Machado wanted a snack, too.
Machado has his own brand of salsa, with unoriginal name “Machado’s Salsa.” So when he called time, teammate Adam Jones was ready with a jar of salsa and a plate of chips.
