David Ortiz hits home run, executes a bat drop instead of a bat flip

Bat flips are common in the sport of baseball -- both in MLB and, maybe even more so, abroad. But during Monday's Red Sox-Angels game, David Ortiz, one of the more prolific home run hitters of this generation, may have rang in a new dinger-celebration: The Bat Drop.

That, or he was just frustrated with the Angels and homer-hitting machine Albert Pujols. Either way, we hope it catches on.
