Four minutes of Japanese baseball bat flips.
Which brought me to two realizations during the clip:
- Just as you grew up practicing Tony Batista’s stance, Japanese children practice the most casual and aggressive of bat flips.
- I didn’t spend any time growing up practicing bat flips and my life, as it stands right now, is worse off for it.

These are all fantastic and worth watching. For my money, though, the best reaction is at 1:21 and it’s the pitcher who just gave up the homer
Holy hell this is the best.
