Carson Wentz Acts as ‘Umpire’ in Elaborate Baseball Themed TD Celebration

Carson Wentz and the Eagles are rolling against the Arizona Cardinals.
When the Eagles picked up their third touchdown of the day, a 59 completion to Torrey Smith, Philadelphia opted to celebrate by pretending to play baseball.
As you can see in the video above, (as well as in this GIF provided by Deadspin.com), after the touchdown, several players lined up in the back of the end zone in order to play a pretend game of baseball.
Touchdown receiver Torrey Smith was the batter, receiver Alshon Jeffrey was the catcher, receiver Nelson Agholor was the pitcher and Carson Wentz gave his best Gary Cederstrom impression acting as the ‘home plate umpire’ behind Jeffrey.
According to Deadspin, one of Major League Baseball’s best players, Mike Trout, originally from New Jersey was in attendance at the game today. No word on what he thought of the celebration.
Running back LeGarrette Blount (No. 29) and TE Zach Ertz (No. 86) were also part of the baseball celebration though their role in the scheme of baseball is unfounded.
Lets just pretend Ertz was acting as this fan in a T-Mobile commercial and Blount was watching the game from seats behind home plate.
Regardless, it looks like Wentz and his friends are having a good time.
