Everyone knows about Yasiel Puig, everything from his ties to the drug cartel he apparently owes money to for being brought over to the US from Cuba to his crazy plays in the outfield and hard hitting bat. The one thing Puig is most famous for?? His bat flip. He flips his bat when he hits a home run or at least so I thought until I saw this video. Now I have no real issue with Puig’s showy behavior – it’s not like he is going all Manny Machado on people. Going all “Manny Machado” and acting like a spoiled child instead of just showboating can actually get people hurt! But Puig being Puig, has now decided to do his famed bat flip when he gets walked …. and apparently there might be consequences to that. Watch as Puig almost injures himself, the catcher and the plate umpire with his bat flip in his game Saturday when the Los Angeles Dodgers took on the Arizona Diamondbacks. I wonder if he might rethink doing his bat flip in the future? My guess is probably not but the video is worth a quick watch just for fun!
