A Kendrys Morales Approved Walk-Off Celebration

There are numerous reasons why I’ve chosen to post the video below:

1) Even though it’s from last season, the walk-off celebration you’re about to witness is most awesome. One Kendrys Morales, who’s been in my thoughts recently, would certainly approve of.

2) Charming NotGraphs commenter Bronnt brought said walk-off celebration to my attention, and I’d like him to know how much I appreciated him doing so.

3) As Chairman Cistulli pointed out in these very pages, MLB.com videos are now embed-able! It’s a brilliant day to be alive.

    That is fantastic. Better than any sitting on the bench silent treatment. I especially like how McLouth looks like he does a post homer handshake celebration with an invisible man upon entering the dugout. Classic.

    Too bad they stopped when they got to the clubhouse. I would have liked to see a parking lot celebration. Maybe even a celebration convoy on the highway.

    I much prefer to it the walkoff celebrations the Braves are using this year, which all seem involving throwing dirt at home plate.

      I like the dirt thing. Anything to add some interest to the game. When Chipper had his last walk-off I think Martin Prado rubbed dirt all over his eyes, Chipper kept trying to blink away and clear his vision.

    It seems to me that this would be even better at the end of a road game. At that moment, the home team just wants to disappear. Giving the disappointed fans nothing to focus on except the home team dugout (instead of a celebration at home plate) would be quite awkward, then.
