The Mariners have taken it upon themselves to deem the bat flip over and done with, and have given us some other suggestions.
Bat flips are so last season.

Some are better than others, so we’ve ranked them.
From worst to best:
Lame. This one required almost no effort. Also, you end up carrying the bat with you as you round the bases.
Bad for the same reasons. Also, I see this as a jinx. Baseball players should not be thinking about getting old; they need to think young thoughts so they can remain youthful and play for forever.
Points back for creativity for this one. Also, the fierce pirate moves could intimidate the other team.
Yes! Pick up the speed on this one! Way to really move off home plate.
The Drum Major
I just like how this one looks. It’s very amusing.
Just classic. Of course, it probably works best after a home run.
