Ex-Athletics slugger Mark Canha drops epic bat flip unmatched in MLB career

Ex-A’s slugger Canha names bat flip vs. Phillies finest of profession initially appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea

Mark Canha did it once again.

The longtime Athletics slugger, now in his very first season with the New York Mets, dropped a famous bat flip Sunday to commemorate a consent two-run crowning achievement in the ninth inning.

It was Canha’s 2nd homer of the video game, the very first being a three-run, video game-tying blast in the seventh inning.

The Mets went on to beat the Philadelphia Phillies 10-8.

Following the game, Canha ranked that bat turn as the very best of his profession, which is stating a lot considering his long resume of bat turns throughout 7 seasons in an A’s uniform.

“That was the best one because it was in a good moment,” Canha stated Sunday. “… The moment, the timing is all a part of it. It’s kind of spur of the moment.”

Canha introduced a couple of bats into orbit while in Oakland. In the opening week of the 2019 MLB season, Canha drifted his bat towards the A’s dugout after squashing a crowning achievement versus the Los Angeles Angels. That was later on called the very best bat turn of the whole 2019 season by MLB Network.

Canha likewise made headings by unapologetically bat turning throughout the 2018 Bay Bridge Series versus the San Francisco Giants. That dinger provided the A’s a 4-3 lead over the Giants, which captured a little bit of reaction in the eyes of baseball traditionalists.

However, Canha declined to ask forgiveness.

“People getting offended by bat flips is so silly. I’m not sorry,” Canha stated in 2018. “I’m not really sorry. It’s part of our game. Everybody does it. If someone is going to throw at me for doing it — I’ve gotten thrown at in the past for bat flipping — I clearly didn’t learn my lesson.

“So, if you’re angered by that, I do not care.”

Only disgruntled Phillies fans could have been upset at Canha’s perfect bat flip Sunday night.
