Uribe, who is from the Dominican Republic, speaks Spanish.

Ex-teammate Hanley Ramirez used to make fun of Uribe’s loose grip of English.

They’re entertaining even when they’re not on the field.

They’ve even got their own handshake.

They also take golf cart rides together.

The Ice Bucket Challenge? Yep, they did it.

But usually, they’re just fooling around in the dugout:

And Ryu shows Uribe he won’t take his bullying. *Boop.*

Sometimes their hijinks get to be a bit much.

They always find a way to make up.
