Zack Greinke left the Dodgers for the huge pile of cash that the Arizona Diamondbacks offered him this offseason, and he tried to show out a bit when he hit what he probably believed to be a donger against his former team. He flipped a itty bitty bat flip to commemorate the occasion. Except, yeah, no, that’s not a…
Remember Edgar Michelangeli, the University of Miami baseball player who clobbered a three-run home run during the ACC Tournament and stopped to admire it for a very long time before flipping his bat? Well, he did it again.
Po-Jung Wang is a rookie in the Chinese Professional Baseball League, currently playing for the Lamigo Monkeys and hitting .398. He hit a nice big dinger on Sunday and unleashed a mighty bat flip off towards his dugout. The bat flip has been drained of most of its subversive qualities (the official MLB Twitter account
Miami beat North Carolina State tonight in ACC Tournament action, thanks to Edgar Michelangeli’s late homer. He really savored it, too—and caused a bit of a stir.
Miami Hurricanes star right fielder Willie Abreu has had one hell of a week. Last Friday, he dinged a walk off grand slam to beat Louisville. The Canes were taking on Clemson last night and had a comfortable lead until their bullpen blew a five-run lead.
You might remember back in July we brought you the tale of Hwang Jae-gyun and his tremendous bat flip. It’s right there, at the top. Note his sense of dramatic timing, his coiled, arching, yet nonchalant flip. This here is a man who knows how to flip a bat.
Here’s Anthony Rizzo at Cubs BP this afternoon:
You knew it was coming. As soon as Jose Bautista flipped his bat halfway to China like he was the baddest man alive—because he had just hit a three-run homer and because he WAS the baddest man alive—you knew the Rangers would have some takes.
For Hwang Jae-gyun’s 21st home run, he held his bat out for a good four seconds before finally flipping it and trotting the bases. The Lotte Giants third baseman made sure the ball was fair so as to not squander such an excellent bat flip.
Sad about the news that Yasiel Puig is going to cut down on his bat flips? Then it’s time to watch more Korean baseball. This is Doosan Bears outfielder Kim Jin-hyung hitting his first career home run against the KT Wiz today, and then firing his bat away like he’s trying to murder somebody with it. If…
He was the best. The whole video is remarkable, because Vlad Guerrero was remarkable, but the bat flip at 1:50, when he hits the laser-beam opposite-field home run to complete the cycle, is wonderful.
South Korea beat Chicago's Jackie Robinson West in the Little League World Series Championship 8-4 today. It featured a pretty solid bat flip from Dong Wan Sin (above) and also a really cool bit of sportsmanship after the game (below).
Bat flips for everyone! These are two little leaguers for the South Korea team bat-flipping their asses off against Puerto Rico today. The first one is a little more about the hands than bat flip, but the second one is textbook. They both happen to be on outs, but that doesn't matter, one of the all-time great bat…
