Zack Greinke Picked an Interesting Spot to Watch Game 1 After Being Pulled

Zack Greinke and the Houston Astros limped into the postseason under .500 thanks to the expanded 2020 playoff format.

However, they got off to a great start in their first playoff series against the Minnesota Twins. Astros ace Zack Greinke pitched four solid innings, surrendering only 2 hits and 1 run. While he didn't pitch long enough to get the win, he did stick around and watch the rest of the game, albeit from an unusual spot.

With no fans in the stands, the players are pretty much given free reign of where they want to sit, especially if they're a pitcher that has been removed from the game and is not allowed to reenter.

Zack Greinke decided to take advantage of this and watch the rest of the game from what would have been a fan's perspective.

Normally, Greinke would be watching the game from the dugout, or from the clubhouse, while he's getting some treatments or cooling off after his start.

But 2020 is different times, and Grienke might never get the chance to watch a game from this perspective again, at least until he retires, so can you blame him for taking advantage of something like that?
