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.

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.
