I imagine there’s context to this and a reason for it and everything, but I feel like this pic of Tony La Russa and Yasiel Puig playing ping pong should sort of stand on its own:

My invented context: our nation’s hand-wringing sportswriters banded together and called La Russa in to give Puig an intervention about how to do things The Right Way. This was a little break in between sessions on various unwritten rules and such.
