Jim | 23 comments it appears to me to be a juvenile attempt to compete with the even more childish endzone "celebrations of football players. My favorites are the elaborate celebration of a touchdown by a player whose team is losing by 35 points in the 4th quarter. I thought at one time the powers that be were going to stop them, but they have surrendered their adult roles to the children. If baseball players did a tenth of that for each run scored there would be so many batters hit by pitches that the ejections would clear the benches. If all pitchers had to bat it might help the situation. BAN the DH!

Very true...humble and professional - although not a Yankee fan at all - he and Derek Jeter handle themselves well...

Agreed - some of these celebrations are somewhat ill-timed - talk about lacking social acuity!
