Dodgers' Puig makes obscene gesture at Cleveland fans

Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig says he reacted and stooped to the level of Cleveland Indians fans who were heckling him Tuesday when he made an obscene gesture toward the stands after hitting a home run.

In the Dodgers' 7-5 road win Tuesday over the Indians, Yasiel Puig had two hits and two RBI.

After crossing home plate at Progressive Field, Puig turned toward a fan sitting behind home plate and gave them two middle fingers.

Puig high-fived his teammates in the on-deck circle before turning toward whichever section he had a problem with and briefly showing the fans what he thought of them.

Puig belted a two-run home run 398 feet to right center off Indians starter Trevor Bauer in the second inning. He realizes he could face a fine from Major League Baseball for his actions. All I know is the picture is nearly too flawless to put into words, so just take a look at Puig flipping off the fans at Progressive Field.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said he didn't see the gesture and asked jokingly, "Are you sure it wasn't No. 1 he was signaling?"
