The Five Best Bat Flips of the Postseason
The 2014 MLB Postseason has not lacked for entertainment. There have been successful underdogs, extra-inning affairs, innumerable web gems and countless bat flips. Ahh, sweet, glorious bat flips. Let's take a look at the five best from the Postseason so far:
Wong's go-ahead home run late in game three of the NLDS produced a casual but emphatic flip.
After Belt hit the go-ahead home run in the 18th inning of Game 2 of the NLDS, he got rid of the bat faster than if he were playing hot potato. Unconventional, but certainly stylish.
Hosmer plays with a lot of energy, and he bat flips with a lot of energy. The flip was even immortalized on the cover of Sports Illustrated.

The bat flip after his homer in Game 2 of the NLCS was textbook: one step, two steps, toss.
Take note, aspiring bat-flippers: this is how it's done.
Even without Yasiel Puig contributing, it's still been a wonderful Postseason for bat flips.
