In Game 2 of the World Series, Carlos Correa hit a home run in the top of the 10th inning to put the Astros up 5-3. After he hit the ball, he flipped the bat pretty high and stuck out his tongue to his teammates in the dugout.
Below is a video of Correa’s monster bat flip!
Now, this sort of thing is nothing new to Dodger fans. Yasiel Puig is known for his bat flips and electric style of play. This is what the Wild Horse had to say about Correa’s bat flip:
I loved it. It was a little bit higher than the bat flips I normally do, but I mean he was happy and that’s the way that you should play in a World Series… He wasn’t batting too well. He was only getting a few hits and when he got the home run it was a moment for him to be happy and I’m glad that he was able to celebrate that way.
Kenley Jansen was also taken deep on Wednesday, and this was his response to how Marwin Gonzalez celebrated the moment.
Kenley Jansen has the only good bat flip opinion.
"You can do whatever you want to if you hit me out, I don’t care. You got me."

Both Kenley Jansen and Yasiel Puig are spot on with their responses towards celebrating home runs. Baseball is a game, after all, and these players should have fun with it. Unfortunately, Dallas Keuchel did not feel that way after witnessing Charlie Culberson’s celebration on Wednesday. Well, he better be ready for Yasiel Puig at Minute Maid Park for Games three, four, and five. Apparently Yasiel Puig was having quite the batting practice there on Thursday evening. Hopefully Puig is able to make some noise in Houston, but you might not see the celebration that you’re used to.
When Yasiel Puig hit a home run in Game 2 of the World Series, he did not go with his signature bat flip. Instead, Puig decided to slam his bat onto the ground. Luckily, it’s just as awesome!
