Aroldis Chapman somersaults twice after converting save (Video)
Aroldis Chapman celebrated a save on Tuesday night in a bizarre way. The Cuban reliever busted out a double-somersault after striking out pinch-hitter Martin Maldonado for the final out of the Reds’ 4-3 win over the Brewers. Chapman must have felt pretty good about converting the save after blowing his previous two chances, so that’s probably why he busted out the double rolls. It probably didn’t hurt that he recorded strikeouts for all three of his outs. That certainly was weird, but cool. Let’s hope he makes it just a one-time deal.
The Reds apparently weren’t pleased with Chapman’s celebration and addressed it with him after the game.
