What If An Ump Taught Yasiel Puig How To Bat Flip?

It’s hot where I am right now, really hot, so let me do something fun and silly and lightweight here. Who doesn’t love Yasiel Puig bat flips, right? Literally no one*.  Via Deadspin, it turns out that extends to MLB The Show, where if you “hold onto the ball on the mound and leave the game unpaused for more than 30 seconds,” the umpire will actually take Puig’s bat away from him and show him the proper way to bat flip, which I suppose is the kind that won’t annoy Brian McCann or something. Either way, this is awesome, and I would give every dollar I have for this to happen in real life.

*No one cool or worth mentioning.
