Watch: OSU star Samantha Show spikes bat after blasting home run
Samantha Show may be introducing the baseball and softball worlds to a whole new home run celebration.
The Oklahoma State Cowgirls star did it all in her team’s 2-1 win over Florida in the Women’s College World Series on Thursday. She pitched a complete game and hit two home runs to beat the Gators in their opening round win.
After her second home run, which gave OSU a 2-1 lead in the sixth, she celebrated by spiking her bat:

That was pretty epic.
Show’s two solo home runs were Oklahoma State’s only two hits of the game off Gators ace Kelly Barnhill. The rest of the team went 0-for-20. Adding another element of drama, Barnhill had said before the game that she didn’t like it when hitters celebrate with bat flips.

On top of being Oklahoma State’s ace, Show is also their best hitter and has 20 home runs on the season. The Texas A&M transfer is carrying the Cowgirls this season.
