Yasiel Puig still has a lot to learn about playing in Major League Baseball, including how to proper dispose of your bat…….on a walk.

On Sunday, Puig who really has mastered the art of the bat flip, both subtle and boisterous, nearly knocked himself, Arizona Diamondbacks catcher Miguel Montero, and home plate umpire Bill Welke, clean out with a bat flip gone completely wrong.

In the first inning of the D-Backs/Dodgers Fathers Day game after Puig drew a walk from D-Backs starter Josh Collmenter,  Puig turned to flip his bat toward the Dodgers dugout but apparently held on just a little too long, sending it straight in the air.

Thankfully the flying piece of lumber didn’t hit anyone as it fell back to the Earth.  Vin Scully was not a fan on the home town call.

"You know, it's one thing to be a bat flipper — OK, you hit a home run, flip the bat," Scully said on the broadcast. "But that's ridiculous to almost hit both men on the head."
