I think everyone has seen this one before. I couldn't find it in this thread. Hope he does this one day with the Mariners.

Shocked he doesn’t play at Vandy with that name. I remember thinking how appropriate it was that Vandy’s biggest baseball star of the past decade was named Dansby Swanson.

Not a bat flip, but a pretty great bat flop:

That was a 3 out of 10 bat flip, arguably not even a flip but a drop, with a 17/10 run around the bases.
