MLB Draft prospect Tyler Stephenson executes majestic bat flip on home run

High school senior Tyler Stephenson is ranked No. 47 on's 2015 prospect watch. He's touted as one of the best catchers in this year's First-Year Player Draft and scouts believe his combination of strength, bat speed and swing loft will translate into huge raw power. Curiously, scouts left out one critical detail of Stephenson's game: his extraordinary bat-flipping abilities.

Those are the kinds of bat flips Yasiel Puig dreams about. Did that bat even come down? I don't think it came down.

This was the second of Stephenson's two home runs on Wednesday night. He was apparently intentionally walked during his three other plate appearances.
