GIF: Dan Uggla Knows from Home Run Swings

I’ve never personally hit a home run in a major-league baseball game. However, were I to hit a home run in that type of baseball game, I’d probably make sure to do a weird, flamboyant helicopter motion thing with my left arm — like the one Dan Uggla performed, I mean, just after hitting a home run against Diamondback rookie Wade Miley on Saturday night.

  2. Clearly, Uggla has been putting in some extra work with the Crime Dog. Either that or he immersed himself into a Tom Emanski video.

    I believe that is called a “redando”

    Uggla has the helicopter follow-through on a lot of his swings. Generally speaking, the helicopter shows up when “Bad Uggla” is batting…it usually follows pop-ups or Ks. “Good Uggla” usually has a more textbook follow through, due to the fact that he’s balanced a bit better.
