Hot GIF: A Corey Hart Behind-the-Back Situation

Given that Scott Baker is conceding only about 2.5 walks per nine innings and sits among the league’s top-10 in Zone%, you’d think that a batter like Corey Hart, having only walked in 6.8% of his career plate appearances, would be surprised to draw a base on balls from Baker.

Decidedly to the contrary, we have this footage from Friday night’s Twins-Brewers game. So unmoved is Hart by Baker’s second-inning walk that he (i.e. Hart) decides to utilize the ubercasual behind-the-back bat toss after the decisive fourth ball.

It’s hard to see, but you can actually see Hart utter the words “Ho” and “Hum” as he makes his way down to first.
