When a baseball game ends with a final score of 22-10, chances are some pretty crazy things happened during those nine innings.
But in the Marlins victory by that score over the Rangers on Wednesday night, the most memorable play didn't happen at home plate, but in the on-deck circle.
In the bottom of the eighth inning with the Rangers already trailing by 12 runs but threatening with the bases loaded, Adrian Beltre was taking his practice swings a few paces away from the on-deck circle. Umpire Gerry Davis told Beltre to get into the on-deck circle, and Beltre responded by simply walking over to the circle, picking it up, and moving it over to where he had been initially standing.

It was a hilarious scene that added a bit of levity to a home blowout.
While the umpire clearly didn't enjoy Beltre's actions, the viewing public certainly did. Twitter immediately lit up with support for the Rangers star, who will likely reach 3,000 career hits in the coming days.
