Vin Scully calls Yasiel Puig the ‘maestro’ of the bat flip (Video)
Yasiel Puig has taken the concept of flipping your bat to new heights. The Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder even flips his bat on routine outs from time to time. On Thursday night, Puig executed one of his highest bat flips on a double to right-center. The legendary Vin Scully shared his thoughts.
“Boy, that was a really high flip,” Scully said. “If you really want to learn how to flip the bat, here’s the maestro. … He thought that was a home run. That was definitely a home run flip.”
Puig’s line drive went off the base of the outfield wall, but he definitely thought it was gone for a second. Apparently he still needs some more time at Dodger Stadium before he can tell when a ball is leaving the park. Until he can get used to his own strength, Puig will continue to infuriate opposing pitchers.
