Practicing my AJ Flip....:cool:

I am going to adopt it as my signature move when I play softball, the occassional drunken whiffle game or PS2 (with my controller, instead of bat). I am not a big fan of the pose or flip, but I notice that AJ only does it as a response to someone who has either shown up the Sox or acted like a troll when rounding the bases.

I have to get the right flip while holding the knob of the bat, to get the right height.

I liken it to practicing the Indiana Jones bull whip flick.

Any of you guys got a signature move to announce yourself with AUTHORATAY...

I figure with the personalities around here, we should get some funny content.

:walkoff:

AJ RULLLLLESSSSS YOU!!!!!

I'd do it, except I'd probably hit the umpire or something. I'm not real coordinated when it comes to bat flips. :smile:

I realized that I have involuntarily been doing the Iguchi bat flip whenever I play wiffleball.

My friends often have a big mouth when we play softball, and since I'm a little guy, they don't expect me to crush a 16" clincher. A buddy of mine was catching and told me to put it out of the infield this time, so on the first pitch, I CRUSHED the ball to deep left center, over the fence no problem.

In response since I knew the ball was gone when I hit it, I did the David Ortiz vs Cuba bat flip, where he tossed the bat end over end like a madman, and then stared down the catcher. Threw a couple expletives in there too. :D:

My signature softball move is my Zambrano-like tantrums after I give up a dinger.

When I played Little League and in high school, I would unconsciously throw the bat around willy-nilly on every hit and I could not seem to stop it! It almost got me in trouble a few times.

I play Pony league ball right now and I've developed the Iguchi flip every time I hit the ball.

My signature wiffleball stance and follow through begins with the Thome bat point and ends with a long stare at my home run and flip of the bat. :D:

I tend to use the amazingly awkward Craig Counsel stance from a few years ago, or I do the Sheffield bat twitch.

I've got the Joe Morgan Chicken Wing & Willie Stargel Bat Twirl combo going. It scares children and the elderly.

When I hit a home run, I usually pull out my special Juan Marichal "Slam the bat over the catchers head" move. Hey, he got into the Hall! Why can't it work for me?
