Bryan Holaday hit the first home run of his big league career today, but a couple guys on the bench missed the "silent treatment" memo

Bryan Holaday might be the Tigers' third string catcher, but he put a first string swing on this pitch from Twins starter Andrew Albers, sending it well over the bullpen for his first career home run.

While Holaday was rounding the bases, the dugout was preparing to give Holaday the "silent treatment," a common practice for a guy's first big league home run.
