The Pittsburgh Pirates’ pregame handshake routine is baseball performance art

After calisthenics and batting practice and before a game, the Pittsburgh Pirates perform a fairly long and detailed handshake routine that’s basically art in motion.  

Just when it looks like the routine might conclude, it doesn’t. At least not until Sean Rodriguez gets involved, which is fair because Rodriguez looks more like a pirate than the buccaneer depicted on the team’s logo.


Watch and enjoy in the video above from before the club’s 7-4 victory over the Tigers on Monday.
