Zack Greinke busted out bat flip on fly out (Video)
Zack Greinke, who signed a six-year deal with the Arizona Diamondbacks last offseason that is worth more than $200 million, heard a chorus of boos from Los Angeles Dodgers fans as he stepped to the plate in the bottom of the second inning Monday night. For a moment, the pitcher thought he had shut those fans up in a big way.
He was wrong.
Greinke hit a fly ball off Dodgers starter Mike Bolsinger that made it all the way to the warning track. Judging by the bat flip, Greinke definitely thought it was going to travel a bit further.
Greinke is actually a pretty good hitting pitcher. He hit two home runs with the Dodgers last season and is batting .290 this year in Arizona. But he has just six homers in his 12-year career, so he might want to leave the bat flipping to guys who do stuff like this at the plate. Good effort, Zack.
