At least they were standing for the National Anthem.
But as to what these two Yankees players were sniffing out of their hands is still a mystery. A video caught Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia ‘sniffing’ something out of his fist. Then directly handing it to his team mate to do the same thing, all while holding their hats during the National Anthem.
Speculation has the internet wondering, was it something illegal or a ‘performance enhancing’ item being inhaled? Or was it just a nasal decongestant? The quick motion in which the players do it might prove it was no way or shape any sort of powder, but more of an inhalant.
No one knows yet, as no determination has been made.
