The Most Classless Celebrations in Baseball

I was a huge fan of former Detroit Lions running back Barry Sanders of the NFL. Every time he scored a touchdown, he acted like he had been there before.

Sanders simply handed the ball to the referee. There was no celebration of any kind, no Barry-Walk, no jumping into the stands to get hugged by fans—never any celebration at all.

On Tuesday night, Cincinnati Reds closer Aroldis Chapman decided to conduct his own celebration after notching a save in the Reds' victory over the Milwaukee Brewers.

We'll get into the act itself and comments about Chapman's antics a little later in our presentation, but it was, in a word, classless.

Celebrations have come in many forms recently, from chest bumps to fist pumps to "styling" after a home run.

All they do is serve to show up the other team.

Since when did that become in vogue?

Here are some examples of some of the more classless celebrations going on in baseball today.
