Yasiel Puig, bat flip maestro, previews upcoming concert season

Vin Scully once christened Yasiel Puig "the maestro" of bat flips. If that's the case, the Dodgers' right fielder gave concertgoers a preview of the upcoming orchestra season on Sunday:

Puig's third home run of Spring Training included his best bat flip of March: Just look at the way he holds his baton and sends it spinning with a gentle nudge. This is Puig's way of reminding everyone that each of his homers is the must-see high-society event of the year.

As for the orchestra that Puig conducts, we only have one thing to say: Grab your sheet music, tune your strings, oil up your horns and take off the tympani covers, because the maestro is here to make beautiful music.
