Tonight’s Game 6 of the World Series is the first game at Dodger Stadium since Astros first baseman Yuli Gurriel made a racist gesture directed at Dodgers pitcher Yu Darvish in Game 3. Rich Hill is the starting pitcher in Game 6 for Los Angeles, and when Gurriel stepped into the box for his first plate appearance in the top of the second, Hill stepped off the mound to let Gurriel hear more boos from the crowd.

For Gurriel’s second plate appearance, Hill again took his time (about 30 seconds) to let Gurriel hear the boos.

MLB chose to suspend Gurriel five regular-season games for the gesture, and that decision has drawn plenty of criticism from those that feel Gurriel should’ve been suspended for World Series games.
