I do not believe I have ever seen this happen before. Scroll down to the GIF.

From all 3 guys?



Honestly it looked like it just got away. The guy does not have that kind of reputation. I wish the recording went longer to see all three guys doing the Curly shuffle. I will look on the interwebs.

Just kidding around, Mark. I would have liked to see the aftermath as well. Baseball players are a sensitive lot. Benches have cleared for pitches thrown behind the batter, but this is something out of Major League. I wonder what Bob Euker or Harry Caray would say?

LOL. It's like a game of Pinball. He got the 3X multiplier! Imagine what he could do with Multiball?

Tim Anderson of the White Sox hit a homer yesterday and javelined his bat toward the dugout for an "Epic Bat Flip" as the kids would say. Kansas City took exception and drilled him in his next at bat. Benches cleared. Ejections ensued. And the "Let the kids play" crowd bemoaned the "Get off my lawn" mentality of the unwritten rules of baseball.

My take. Go ahead and show all the "personality" you want. Want to stand and watch your homer for 10 seconds before you start running because that's your "personality?" Go for it. Want to flip you bat in a new, unique, millennial pleasing way? Flip it into the upper deck if you want. But if I'm the pitcher don't tell me how I have to feel about it. Because my personality might come out and you might wear a 95 MPH fastball between the numbers. And I would thank you to just take your base.
