Tater Trot Tracker

The Japanese Bat Flip

by Larry Granillo

If this video is to be believed, the bat flip following a home run is an art in Japanese baseball. The four-minute video, created by a true baseball hero, is mesmerizing to watch. The bats just keep flying. It's as if the NPB is filled with a thousand Carlos Gomez's.

Watch and enjoy (or cringe, depending on how you feel about this kind of thing). And, no, you cannot unmute the audio.

(H/T to Justin Bopp at MLB Daily Dish)
