An 8th grade baseball player put on some serious theatrics recently after crushing a long home run, starting with a big bat flip and working into the running man (#RunningManChallenge) that was popularized by a pair of Maryland basketball players.

The slugger was identified by Max Preps as Logan Hall. Call me Goose Gossage, but that bat flip is a bit too much for my taste. Hopefully it works out better for Hall than it did for Jose Bautista.
