When Pittsburgh Pirates manager Derek Shelton had an argument with plate umpire Jordan Baker in a game between the Pirates and the St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday, he made sure to put on a mask first.
Shelton was unhappy and clashed with Baker in the third inning after pitcher Derek Holland was ejected for arguing about a balls-and-strikes call.
Later in an interview, Shelton paid Baker a compliment in terms of how they handled their socially-distanced argument: "Jordan did a really good job of it. We were trying to stay distant, which we were both aware of. Then his mask broke midway through [our argument] so I wanted to make sure that my mask stayed up and he was great."
