Doing The Wave With Beer

Michael Bowden pitched in ten games as a reliever for Navegantes del Magallanes in Venezuela this winter. He was used in a lot of different situations, something Bowden felt was "very beneficial".

He told Brian MacPherson of the Journal about the crowds:
If you get a big out or end an inning, the place goes crazy. ... They're dancing. There's bands. They're doing the Wave with beer.
And what, exactly, does "doing the Wave with beer" mean?
Instead of throwing your hands in the air, they throw beer, and it goes all the way around the stands. It actually looks really, really cool. ... They waste beer the whole game. They're throwing it at us if we're not good. They're throwing it at other people if they're fans of the other team. It's pretty wild.
