Yasiel Puig tongue

Now that he is officially taking his bat-licking antics to the World Series, Yasiel Puig is providing some funny insights into his rationale for doing so.

After his Los Angeles Dodgers clinched the National League pennant with a victory over the Chicago Cubs in NLCS Game 5 on Thursday, Puig had this to say about why he licks his bat, per James Fegan of The Athletic:

The Cuban outfielder first went viral with the bat licks during his first plate appearance of the divisional series against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Since then, he is hitting .414/.514/.655 with a home run and six RBIs in eight games for the postseason, so the bat must enjoy it. Keep doing you, Yasiel.
