Rudolph Castro was the protagonist of an unusual moment in the Big leagues. This because the player of the Pittsburgh Pirates dropped his cell phone from his pocket in the middle of the game against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday, August 9. It has now been revealed that Major League Baseball (MLB) is investigating the reason the Dominican had his phone with him at the time.
One of the rules of Major League Baseball was broken by Rodolfo Castro on Tuesday night, since he was carrying his cell phone with him in the middle of a game between the Pittsburgh Pirates and the Arizona Diamondbacks.
According to journalist Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic, this has led the League to open an investigation into what happened and the reason why the native of the Dominican Republic had the electronic device with him.
The 23-year-old infielder starred in that unusual moment when he ran from second base to third mat, where at the time of sliding, the cell phone came out of the back pocket of his pants.
Rodolfo Castro later stated that it was not his intention to have the object with him during the development of the game. However, he could now face a sanction from the MLB.
