First time watching SportsCenter in years and Olbermann did a bat flip feature and it was fun. Check it out

Side note: I wish this board had the ability to embed non-gif related content because a lot of that stuff is moving toward web video formats. Tried to find a gif of this but it only exists in mp4 formats which don't auto play or work well here

Often times if you just change the end to .gif it will work. At least that's I can do with stuff from Reddit or Deadspin that's coded as video.

I tried that here, no dice, unfortunately. It was originally on gfycat but that just wasn't working.

Either way, that's a wonderful bat flip

It's not a bat flip (I know), but it's a really nice bat drop.

The full bat flip is great, but the understated bat drop works too.

nah, just rename the thread. what a glorious magnificant batflip, and the fact it led to Renteria to lose his horsefeathers (after the HBP) makes it even better

AND THEN Wilson hits is second! great game

Andy Vanslyke did that to me and my friends at Wrigley when were heckling him pretty hard in the bleachers when he played for the Pirates. After his second HR of the day we kind of shut up. I feel like we were personally responsible for the Cubs losing that day. I think he had like 5 RBI.
