Apparently, if you win the Platinum Glove and you're a Rawlings guy, they give you a game glove that has a rectangular platinum-colored swatch at the base of the back of the glove - the part that goes over your wrist (see blurry pic below). So...Manny Machado is playing catch with Jonathan Schoop along the 1B line before batting practice. They're goofing around with pitches (knucklers, splitters, etc.) and Schoop bounces one in front of Manny. Naturally, Manny scoops it perfectly. If not, the VIP's standing behind him would've gotten plunked. Manny turns around, looks at the VIP's, then looks back at Schoop, points to the platinum swatch, and flashes a wide ship-eating grin.
