Even if Jose Bautista‘s iconic bat flip last season got him punched in the head this season, it’s hard to deny thanks to players like him and Yasiel Puig, that bat flips are officially trendy.

That was Edgar Michelangeli of Miami, and that’s gaudy even by South Beach standards.

To be fair, that was a three-run shot that put the Hurricanes up 9-8 in the ninth inning, so it was a pretty big hit. But still. He held that bat up for what seemed to be an eternity. Somewhere, an old-timer is having a heart attack about the unspoken rules of the game.
