You mad, bro?

A high school baseball player in New Jersey hit the arrogance trifecta when he smashed a home run on Sunday.

First, he stood and admired his homer. Then he flipped his bat a solid 20 feet in the air. By the time his bat came down, he was still another 7-8 seconds from reaching first base, at which point he finally decided to scoot around the bases with a little more speed.

Turco GC HR just fair makes it 7-4.

The kid nailed it.

  1. Admire the moonshot
  2. Bat flip like you don't care
  3. Take 10 seconds to get to first base

That's the arrogance trifecta, as defined by... me.

According to, the bat flipper extraordinaire is future University of Albany player, Chris Turco.

Bryce Harper would be proud, young man.
