Yes, tearing off jerseys on walkoffs was kind of a big thing this year, Pete Alonso specifically is one I remember.for that matter, why would Altuve's worry there be "don't tear my jersey off"? Is there some sort of jersey-tearing ritual for walk-offs that I've missed despite watching my share of baseball? Banging on helmets, gatorade baths, all of that sure, but "rip the guy's jersey off" isn't part of the repertoire I'm used to. Maybe we're misinterpreting Altuve's body language there via some motivated reasoning.
