Oakland Athletics first baseman Mark Canha put his team up 3-0 over the Los Angeles Angels Monday with a towering home run. Then, he capped it off with an emphatic bat flip that everyone noticed.

Here’s the moon-shot home run from Canha, which went 425 feet off the arm of Griffin Canning .

Here’s a closer look at the bat flip.

It’s been a wild and crazy day around MLB with the stunning Miami Marlins’ COVID-19 outbreak dominating the news. But it’s nice to see that some things never change — bat flips are back, and they are always awesome.
