Yasiel Puig shows New Yorkers how to bat flip

Yasiel Puig hit the streets of New York with the crew of MLB Off the Bat on MTV2, and taught various New Yorkers how to flip bats to celebrate any occasion. This segment showed me that the art of bat flipping is something that takes practice, and isn’t something that can be mastered quite easily. In fact, the only two bat flips featured that I considered acceptable were from the kid in the cap and gown and from the long-time Dodgers fan in the green polo. So while Puig’s bat flips are beautiful, they’re not something he picked up overnight.
