After a stellar performance in the World Baseball Classic, Randy Arozarena aims to help the Tampa Bay Rays make a playoff run this season.
He’s become one of the more exciting players in the league and his pose has become a favorite amongst most baseball fans.
Arozarena hit a monster home run on Sunday and struck his pose in the middle of his home run trot. It was actually awesome to see, but some MLB fans are oddly furious about it.
Here’s the home run and pose Randy Arozarena hit.

Old-school baseball fans just want to see players participate in the game and that seems to be it. Where’s the fun in that?
Give me the taunting highlight reel every single time. Especially in a sport that is normally slow-paced.
Even so, plenty of baseball fans didn’t like what they saw from Randy Arozarena. Even though everything about it was awesome.
He's getting beaned his next AB https://t.co/tYhbc2sLfE

If the opposing team doesn’t want Arozarena to strike his pose, then maybe don’t let him hit a home run.
Throw the ball at his hip next at bat

What’s the fun in that?
Doing that in front of the opposing dugout might not be the best idea down the road. Maybe after you touch home plate looking towards your dugout. #Rays #RaysUp

I hope Randy Arozarena strikes his pose every time he hits a home run. There’s nothing wrong with making the game fun.
