Bat flips are all the rage these days. They are funny while also getting the curmudgeon crowd all angry for "disrespecting the game." We obviously often see them on home runs, near homers and Yasiel Puig making contact. But how about a bat flip on a walk? Sure, why not? Take it away, Junior Lake:

Now, the Cubs had the bases loaded there, so was it a celebratory flip for the RBI? Who knows. Who cares? It was funny and it'll anger the "how is this news?" crowd in addition to upsetting the "disrespect" people.

For that, I thank you, Junior.
