What happens in the locker room stays in the locker room, but what happens in the dugout stays on national TV if the camera happnes to be pointed that direction.
While battling it out with the Los Angeles Dodgers, Atlanta Braves players Ronald Acuña Jr. and Ozzie Albies took a breather off the field, sharing an adorable cuddle and tender head caress.

Acuña Jr. and Albies make us feel just a little uncomfortable…

And because hope isn’t remotely dead, there was also plenty of support for the plutonic affection:
Bro the world is making people weird. That’s true brotherhood right there… #alllove

This is what “man up” should mean. Don’t be afraid to be kind.
