The MLB regular season hasn’t even started yet, and the Houston Astros are already getting beat up. The team was booed at spring training and Alex Bregman got plunked as the Stros faced the St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday.
As Bregman stood at the plate on Wednesday, he took a ball in the back from Cardinals pitcher Ramon Santos.

Houston is obviously still facing guff from the fans after its now infamous sign-stealing scandal.
Some fans also sported protest signs taking the Astros to task, though ballpark security quickly confiscated them:
