Little League World Series Kids Are Now Doing Their Very Own Bat-Flips (Video)
In baseball more than any other sport, it seems kids try to emulate their Major League heroes down to the smallest detail. Batting stances and pitching wind-ups are all co-opted, so it’s no surprise that even the foreign teams in the Little League World Series have taken to showing off their best bat-flips.
The results would make Yasiel Puig proud.
Here’s a quick video compilation of some bat flips from the South Korean players, complete with a shit-kickin’ country western guitar track for some reason:
The flips range from blasé to aggressive. Regardless of the technique, I think we can all enjoy the fact that somewhere, some baseball traditionalist is having a coronary that these lousy youngsters are disrespecting our NATIONAL PASTIME!!!
It beats seeing a team of 12 year-olds that are juicing. Though that would be pretty fun to watch , too.
