The Milwaukee Brewers are known for their celebrations and odd ways. Remember the explosion celebration at home plate two years ago that had the Giants all ticked off? Or how about Njyer Morgan and his oddball postgame interviews? There’s little doubt the Brewers like to have fun on the field. The difference is now they have the team to back it up.
The Brewers have debuted a new celebration on the field. After players get big hits, they turn to the dugout with their arms spread out as if they’re scaring someone. Nyjer Morgan calls the celebration “beast mode,” while Prince Fielder explained that it comes from the movie Monsters Inc.
“That’s my kids’ favorite movie,” Prince told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “The whole team does it now. It’s something that I saw my kids do, and I thought it was funny, so I thought I might as well do it, too.”
Most of the players seem to be doing it. I’ve seen Prince, Nyjer, Casey McGehee, and Yuniesky Betancourt do it. Check out some of the pics below.
Here’s Casey McGehee:
Shortstop Yuniesky Betancourt:
And Prince Fielder once again:
Prince and Nyjer seem to be the only ones who understand the celebration’s true monster-scaring roots. The others appear to be playing along. Hey, baseball is 162 games long. Players have to come up with ways to keep themselves entertained, right?Google+
