WATCH: Nelson Cruz pauses ASG to take a photo with legendary umpire

The MLB All-Star Game took a surprising pause on Tuesday night, as Mariners slugger Nelson Cruz stopped the game to take a picture with long-time umpire Joe West.

West is one of the most well-known umpires in baseball, and earlier this season umpired his 5,000th game in the majors. 

The man behind the camera for this photo-op? A potential Hall of Famer in Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina.

Surely, the original shot will appear on Cruz's Instagram feed in the near future.
