Found September 20, 2013 on Diehardsport:
Is there a better way of celebrating an MLB division title but by jumping in the other team’s pool? The Los Angeles Dodgers did just that Thursday after clinching the NL West crown over the Arizona Diamondbacks. After celebrating with champagne in the clubhouse and some worm dancing from Yasiel Puig (GIF below), several of the Dodgers decided to go back on the field and into the pool located in center field. The Diamondbacks requested on Wednesday that the Dodgers not celebrate on Chase Field, and when they did, they didn’t appreciate it. Willie Bloomquist went so far as calling it “classless”. #DBacks not happy with Dodgers celebrating in Chase Field pool, Willie Bloomquist called it "classless and disrespectful." — Tyler Emerick (@TylerEmerick) September 19, 2013 Bloomquist: "I would expect them to act with a little more class than they did. I doubt the New York Yankees would do something like that." — Tyler Emerick (@TylerEmerick) September 19, 2013 Bloomquist: "They clinched the division this year so if that’s how they’re going to act and be classless, that’s their clubhouse." — Tyler Emerick (@TylerEmerick) September 19, 2013
