“Did y’all get that on tape?” Cliff Lee ends postgame media session with loud fart

Jul 22, 2014, 9:45 AM EDT

Phillies left-hander Cliff Lee struggled last night in his return from the disabled list, allowing six runs in a loss to the Giants. Afterward he conducted a typical postgame media session with various beat reporters in the Phillies’ clubhouse, during which he very seriously and calmly answered their questions.

And then he ended things with a loud fart.

Oh, and luckily our friends at CSNPhilly.com caught the whole thing on video, including Lee’s “did y’all get that on tape?” They did, Cliff. They did.

John Finger of CSNPhilly.com makes an excellent point regarding the aftermath of Lee’s fart:

Baseball writers may not be able to defeat baseball players at a whole lot of things, but farting is one area they can definitely dominate.
