Yadier Molina rips a base hit after mid at-bat pushups

On Monday night against the Phillies, a brushback pitch from Brett Oberholtzer dropped Molina to the dirt where the veteran catcher decided to stay in a leaning rest and pound out a couple push-ups.

Nothing like some some push-ups to get those pectoral muscles firing. Here it is broken down:

"That was a first" Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said after the game. "It seemed to work so we might see it again. If [Molina] had hit a home run he might do it every at-bat in the on deck circle."

A short body weight workout and a base knock? Not a bad plate appearance.
