Yasiel Puig hit a ball off Trevor Bauer very far. Before he did that, you could hear a fan over the Indians broadcast yelling and being obnoxious. Those two things came together in a beautiful bird flip from the young slugger after he finished his home run trot.

Maybe he wasn’t flipping off that exact heckler. Maybe he wasn’t flipping anyone off at all, it’s perfectly reasonable to assume his arms happened to fly up and only his middle fingers slipped out in the middle of a jogging motion. Those little buggers can be slippery, after all.
Yeah, he’s probably gonna be fined.
