Ronald Acuna Jr.. connected his undisputed second of the LVBP final between his sharks of La Guaira and the Leones del Caracas and it was a superb home run through the central garden, something that ignited the controversy in the University stadium of the Venezuelan capital.
The player of the Bravos Atlanta missed four at-bats in Game 1 and didn’t want to pass up the opportunity to punish the Lions’ pitching in Game 2.
With the bases clean, the outfielder hit a terrific home run and celebrated in grand style, doing his customary LeBron James impersonation, among other moves around the bases that fired up opposing fans in the stadium.
According to several journalists present at the venue, there were problems between Leones fans and Acuña Jr.’s family, especially after such an extensive celebration.
This motivated the outfielder to leave the game before concluding it and announce through social networks that he was retiring from the LVBP and that he would no longer play in Venezuela.
Acuña Jr. has been involved in controversy in recent days as there are also doubts about his participation in the next edition of the World Classic.
