Jeff McNeil, an offensive machine during the 2019 season, didn't really slump -- as he not so subtly pointed out Wednesday on The Cookie Club presented by Insomnia Cookies. But there was one time where he was in need of help. And one of his teammates delivered -- literally.
"When he was in a slump, he was like 0-for-5 or 0-for-6 in a game, and the only way to bring happy squirrel back was Dom (Smith) running inside and getting him a hot dog mid-game," J.D. Davis said. "And then him virtually going up the very next at-bat and getting a hit. And he was still pissed off."
"The hot dog thing is true," a smiling McNeil announced while interrupting Davis' story. "I got a hot dog mid-game."
"I did bring him a hot dog mid-game," Smith admitted, adding that they kept it secret from the media at the time. "We can't let y'all know in time -- in live time -- the secrets that is going on," Smith explained.
"Then fans will start throwing hot dogs onto the field if you don't get a hit or something like that," Davis said about keeping the hot dog delivery a secret at the time.
"It's raining hot dogs!" exclaimed Smith.
