Video: Did Tigers' Joe Nathan Do Chin Flick Gesture at Fans?

By Stefanie Pohl. CREATED Aug 14, 2014

Following an 8-4 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates at Comerica Park Wednesday night, oft-criticized Detroit Tigers pitcher Joe Nathan was caught on camera doing what appeared to be chin flick gestures at the fans. 

The Tigers were up 8-4 in the 9th inning when Nathan took the plate to the sound of boos from the fans, which only got louder when the pitcher walked the first two batters. In the end, Nathan forced a groundout double play that ended the game and kept the win in tact.

As the team celebrated, Nathan was seen doing the gesture on camera. Was he really making a statement to the fans and his critics?
