San Diego Padres catcher Austin Hedges proved he’s a man of many talents in a Bop It face-off with teammate Hunter Renfroe.
Hedges and Padres outfielder Hunter Renfroe squared off with the children’s game Bop It for the latest in their “Hedgey vs. Hunter” video series, which features the duo trying to beat each other in a variety of odd challenges during 2019 Spring Training.
It initially seemed like Hedges would steamroll Renfroe in this particular round, as the catcher was pretty darn good at the game—and looked like he was having a whole lot of fun at the same time.
But Renfroe managed to get the hang of Bop It and came back to surprise Hedges with his second attempt. Which Padre won the Bop It challenge? Well, you’ll have to watch the video below to find out.
It’s well worth your four and a half minutes, though. While it’s obviously an attempt by the San Diego Padres to have more off-the-field content on the team’s YouTube channel, all credit to Austin Hedges and Hunter Renfroe for throwing themselves into the tasks at hand.
Hedges’ snarky comments and reactions while Renfroe is playing steal the show, too. This is a guy who once wore a Deadpool mask in the dugout, so clearly he’s got a sense of humor, and watching this video will just makes you think hanging out with Hedges would be an awful lot of fun.
Other “Hedgey vs. Hunter” episodes include mini golf and Twister. Of course, if they really want to get competitive, they should play a game of Monopoly. But that might end with Hedges walking off in a whole different fashion.
