Stretching, playing catch and batting practice are all part of the normal pregame routine for a baseball player. How about milking a cow? Well, Twins infielder Eduardo Escobar did exactly that on Friday evening before the Twins played the Angels.

Escobar told Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com he had never milked a cow before.

Escobar had been away with the team earlier this week as he was in the process of acquiring a green card to eventually become a U.S. citizen. The team even threw a party for the Venezualan native when he returned to Minnesota on Wednesday.

The utility infielder is hitting just .208 this season, but he has a career average of .250 over the past six seasons for Minnesota.
