Yasiel Puig is known for having fun on the field, and not always taking things too seriously. If anyone was going to imitate a Little Leaguer’s batting stance during an actual game, it would be Puig.
On Saturday night, Deivis Ordonez, a player for Venezuela at the Little League World Series, went viral for his exaggerated crouching batting stance.
Apparently, it is something Ordonez does regularly, but only for the first pitch of the at-bat.
This kid has the WILDEST batting stance we've ever seen.

This afternoon, Puig did his best impression of Ordonez when he stepped into the box against New York Yankees starter CC Sabathia.
Puig didn’t actually stay in the crouch for the pitch from Sabathia, but his imitation was incredibly accurate.

Puig will probably be asked about the stance post-game, and he’ll surely provide a memorable response.
As for Ordonez, it has to be pretty cool to see a well-known MLB player imitate you in the box, even if it is for a goofy reason.
