Important Bat-Flip Coverage: Prince Fielder, Minutes Ago

Prince Fielder hit a home run against Brandon Morrow a few minutes ago. Among the people impressed by Fielder’s home run was Prince Fielder himself.

To wit:

Fielder Flip 2

And more to wit:

Fielder Flip 2 Side

  4. ST is a time for practice. Prince obviously was obviously unhappy after reviewing tape with his 2012 celebratory performances and spent the offseason refining his bat-flipping game.

    Gotta appreciate a man who takes his art seriously.

      Maybe it’s just the angle but does the left fielder look like he dramatically misjudged his chance to catch the ball?

        It looks like the left fielder is 10 yards to the right of the line that the ball landed on – poorly phrased ugh…

    Pretty sure that’s a momentum thing, due to his forearms and hands coming back from over his shoulder, and not anything deliberate.
