Angels' Hector Santiago fails miserably at the cinnamon challenge

Thursday April 16th, 2015

Los Angeles Angels pitcher Hector Santiago recently decided to amuse himself and his teammates in the clubhouse by being the newest person to embark on the cinnamon challenge, a craze that swept the nation a few years ago.

How long could the Major League pitcher keep the cinnamon contained in his mouth? Would he show that he's better than many of the rest? Not even close.

As you'll see in the video below, Santiago didn't last all that long and the cinnamon quickly comes right back out into the world. 

Failed this time !
