In the top of the fourth inning of Saturday’s game against the Marlins, Yasiel Puig hit a three-run home run to left center to give his team a 6-2 lead. It traveled an impressive distance — 452 feet, according to ESPN’s Adnan Virk.

The most impressive part was not the distance, but Puig’s bat toss. Here is Exhibit A, in .gif form from Chad Moriyama.

The MLB.com video doesn’t give you a great look at it, unfortunately:
