Umpire teaches Yasiel Puig how to bat flip in MLB The Show (Video)

If you’re a fan of baseball and video games, there’s a very good chance that you’ve played Sony’s MLB The Show before. As one of the premier sports video games available, The Show is eagerly anticipated every year and routinely becomes one of the best selling video games of the year.

In addition to the realistic and solid play, the production team that works on the game often goes the extra mile as you’ve likely seen in crowd reactions, mascots and more.

You’ve also probably noticed at one point or another if you leave the game alone for about thirty seconds (say to grab a bite to eat) that cut scenes will emerge. Maybe it’s a player taking a rest in the outfield or a beach ball falling onto the field.

Or maybe it’s an umpire teaching Los Angeles Dodgers phenom Yasiel Puig to perform a bat flip. Yep, those at Sony’s San Diego based studio clearly had a little too much fun at the expense of Yasiel Puig, who in the below video is taught how to perfect a bat flip by the home plate umpire.

It’s random in nature, but your best bet is to simply play against the Dodgers and let your pitcher rest for a while without pushing any buttons when Yasiel Puig is at-bat. Eventually cut screens will appear and there’s a strong likelihood you’ll come across this hilarity.

If only there was a cheat code that would make Bryce Harper hustle in the game. Just kidding. Sort of.
