Who said Spring Training baseball can't be fun? The outcome of the games have very little meaning or impact, but that doesn't mean the players can't enjoy themselves during preseason action. The San Francisco Giants and San Diego Padres found themselves in a back-and-forth affair Sunday, and these two home run-hitters stole the show with a little flare.
First, Giants shortstop Mauricio Dubon unleashed a no-doubt bomb to left field to break a 4-4 tie in the sixth inning. Before starting his trot around the bases, Dubon stuck around home plate to admire his long ball before dropping his bat and giving a look back at the dugout.
Then, Wil Myers returned the favor for the Padres. San Diego regained the lead on his two-run dinger to straight away center field, and the first baseman opted for a full-on bat flip that looks to be in midseason form.
If these bat flips don't have you geared up for Opening Day later this month, then I don't know what will.
