What do you think of flipping bats after home runs?

It's a hot dog move with no place in the game

Bat Flips

Post by CardsofSTL »

Tomorrow is an off day; might as well do a poll.

There's been a couple of bench clearing brawls already this season after hitters being HPB following a home run in which they either watched the ball fly for an extended time or flipped a bat after a home run; so where do we stand on bat flipping? Is it blasphemy or just some harmless fun?

I think it’s silly to bat flip a homer in the fourth inning in April but I can’t imagine why anyone would get worked up about it.

Instead of I don't care one way or the other I should have put the option "jagtrader" :P

The “plays the game the right way” guide to bat flippery.

Bat flips are okay, if...
1. The player is white, “would make a good cardinal” and is an established veteran (30+). Any team.
2. The player is white and young and “gets a little rambunctious but he’ll learn.” My team only.
3. The player is a POC and really cool. But not too cool. still enjoys waino’s Christian rock in the clubhouse. My team only.
4. The bat flip is used as retribution following a beaning. My team only. Other teams’ players need to act like they’ve been there before and keep their cool at all times.


Just let the people flip bats!! It has a hilarious aesthetic. Those Korean league flips are insane. There’s clearly a racial component to when people deem it inappropriate
