Manny Machado had a salsa break during the Home Run Derby

Tuesday July 14th, 2015

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.
