Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig is likely facing a fine after flipping double birds at some hecklers Tuesday.
Puig crushed a homer to right-centerfield in the top of the second inning against the Cleveland Indians, rounded the bases and then flashed the middle finger of both hands as he was jogging to the dugout.
After the game, Puig admitted to stooping down the hecklers’ level.
Yasiel Puig said he was getting heckled. "I reacted that way," he said. "I stooped to their level."

“It’s something that came out,” Puig added after the game. “There’s really nothing I can do at this point.”
