The 22 Cockiest Home Run Rituals in Major League Baseball

The home run is the most spectacular event to witness in a baseball game.

It is a moment where everyone stops, turns and marvels. Fans, coaches, teammates and the hitters themselves take a moment to appreciate the distance that the ball travels.

Sometimes however, the players get a little too showy about them. 

From flipping a bat, to nodding to the dugout, to pointing to the sky, some players are a bit too cocky about hitting a home run. It's a big deal to hit a home run, but for players that do it once or twice a week, you'd think they'd be used to it by now.

Though I will say it is better for established home run hitters to trot. I can't think of anything more annoying to see a guy who hits three a year try to milk it for all it is.

With that I present the 22 cockiest home run trots.
