Puig, who previously played for the Los Angeles Dodgers, says he likes to pretend his bat is vanilla-flavored, but sometimes he admits the bat doesn’t taste great.

“At least I’m giving love to my bat,” he says in the video.

When he licks the bat – a quirk only he seems to have, according to MLB.com – he knows “something good’s coming.” Fox News has no stats on whether the bat licking actually helps him play better, but whatever works.
