Over the past couple of years, "bat-flipping" after a homerun has become a sensitive and much talked about issue in baseball.
Some current and former players feel that letting off that emotion after a big play here and there adds a little flavor and energy to the game. Some consider it in poor taste?
So what do we do? Get rid of it? Or get over it?
Los Angeles Angels slugger Mike Trout is against bat flipping as a showcase for personality."I just keep it the same," Trout said at spring training in Goodyear, Arizona, according to the Los Angeles Times. "I don't try to show anybody up. Whatever somebody else does, that's what they do."
Bryce Harper on the other hand, thinks it should be room for showmanship on each side. He also wants the showmanship and flair of the new generation to be embraced, not used against them.
