Watch awesome alternate angle of Ryan Jeffers bat flip (Video)

Just when we thought Ryan Jeffers’ epic bat flip couldn’t get any cooler.

Thursday night was a baseball game that turned into a home run derby almost as soon as the first pitch was thrown. Both the Minnesota Twins and Texas Rangers launched a combined total of eight homers, with the last and most critical being blasted by Ryan Jeffers.

With two outs and a runner on in the eighth inning of a game the game tied, Rocco Baldelli made what seemed in the moment to be a curious decision to pinch hit Jeffers for Edouard Julien. Based on how hot Julien has been at the plate this year, you'd think that such a situation would be tailor-made for him, but one swing later Jeffers showed why the decision had been made.

Jeffers tattooed the first pitch he saw from Rangers reliever Will Smith and took it 427 feet to left centerfield.

The blast lifted the Twins to a 7-5 lead that Griffin Jax would hang onto in the ninth to secure a comeback win. Jeffers' home run was the fifth on the night for Minnesota and just the second time the team was able to do anything with a runner on base.

Needless to say, Jeffers was pretty fired up when he launched the go-ahead bomb, flipping his bat in rather epic fashion.

Bally Sports North cameras captured part of Jeffers bat flip, but an alternate angle that was later shared on social media is even better.

Sometimes you have to put your hand up and admit you were wrong. When Julien was sent back to the dugout in favor of Jeffers in a clutch situation, I'll admit things were muttered at the television questioning the decision.

Rocco has made some questionable managerial decisions this season, most recently getting dragged for taking Bailey Ober out of a game he was pitching well in that the Twins went on to lose. Pinch hitting Jeffers for Julien was a decision that instantly aged well and is a reminder that as frustrating as Rocco is at times he knows what he's doing.

Jeffers is now a career .571 hitter in pinch hit situations after his eighth inning bomb, which is yet another feather in the cap of the crop of young Twins players forging a youth movement this season.

Everything about the moment was worthy of a bat flip, and Jeffers delivered on just about every level he could have.
