MLB releases hype video advocating bat flips, celebrations
If this video doesn’t get you excited about the MLB postseason, nothing will.
MLB released a video on Tuesday intended to get fans hyped for the postseason, which (arguably) began on Monday but really gets started with the NL Wild Card Game on Tuesday.
The video includes a compilation of players celebrating big hits with bat flips and such and speaks out against the unwritten rules that suggest players should not do those things.

Then bringing out Ken Griffey Jr., who says, “no more talk. Let the kids play,” is a perfect conclusion.
It’s a new time and new era where people like to see celebrations and reject the old school mentality. MLB seems to recognize that and is encouraging it, which is a positive step.
