New York, NY- Major League Baseball issued the following statement this afternoon regarding the post race shoving incident involving Estaban Ocon and Max Verstappen from Nov. 11, 2018.

Major League Baseball has for years prided itself and its players for being the standard of ridiculous posturing and shoving matches that are really just sort of silly. Whether it is pitchers and catchers all running from the outfield to just stand around second base and stare intensely at the opposing team, or a batter standing between home and first and angrily glaring at a pitcher that threw too far inside and is just wasting everyone’s time, we would hope Liberty Media takes control of this situation before it devolves into worse behavior such as one driver doing that ‘hold me back bro’ thing which is really over the top and embarrassing to all parties involved.
