umpbatflip

Yasiel Puig is considered one of the great bat flippers in the game today, but the truth is that he is still only in his first full season in the majors. It is scary to think that his bat flip technique could get even better. Improvement may very well be on the way thanks to a very unlikely source – an umpire (albeit an umpire from the video game “MLB 14: The Show”).

This video is an easter egg hidden within the game and clearly represents veteran umpire Joe West. No one enjoys putting on a good “ump show” like ol’ Country Joe…

Now that this special hidden feature of this game has been revealed, Sony has announced that it will begin selling copies with the originally intended cover:
