It Is Not Spring Training for Yasiel Puig Bat Flips


This time of year, guys are just getting into the swing of things, figuratively and literally. Pitchers are strengthening their arms, and working on their pitches. Hitters are re-training their eyes, and getting down their timing. Mascots are nailing down the order of their comical pelvic thrusts:


For Yasiel Puig, though, clearly no Spring Training is necessary.

No, I’m not talking about the monster shot he hit today … I’m talking about what he did so beautifully with his bat after the shot:

That’s just good, smooth form right there. The bat is launched – with solid distance – immediately on recoil from the swing.


I’d say “save some for the regular season,” but I don’t think those skills are going anywhere.
