Yadier Molina celebrated his game-tying home run with a perfect imitation hair flip

Surely inspired by a trophy case filled with Gold Gloves, Yadier Molina emerged behind the plate during the National League's 2-1 loss in the 2017 All-Star Game presented by MasterCard with some sparkling gear. He was like a mix of C-3PO and a Power Ranger: 

Of course, Brandon McCarthy had another take: 

After playing photographer for Nelson Cruz's amazing mid-game photo with umpire Joe West, Molina emerged as a star in his own at-bat in the bottom of the sixth inning. On the 2-2 pitch from Ervin Santana, Molina swung and drove the ball out to right-center to tie the game. He then raced around the bases, a wide smile upon his face. 

Once he got back to the dugout and removed his helmet -- showing his bleached golden blonde hair, natch -- the Cards catcher one-upped his own stylish move by imitating Bryce Harper's signature hair flip. Only problem: Molina doesn't have the follicle length necessary to pull it off ... yet.
