Samantha Show is a major-league level bat-flipper at the Women’s College World Series.
Or in the case of her latest bat flip, she may have some anger issues.
“I mean, she dropped Thor’s hammer on us,” commentator Kayla Braud said on the air.

The bat flew end over end toward teammates celebrating and dodging it. One person wasn’t so lucky to avoid it, per espnW.
“I actually hit one of our managers. I said sorry. But after I threw it, I was like, ‘Oh, crap.’ It just kept going.”
It was her 20th home run of the season, extending her single-season record, and the emotion of her Thor-esque hammer throw reverberated around the sold-out stadium.
She said after the game, per espnW, the flip was not premeditated.
“Anything that happens after a home run of mine, I don’t plan out. Just whatever emotion I have inside me. Normally I have so much that’s why the dramatic bat flips happen because it just needs to come out. I’m very emotional.”
Tim Anderson even gave Show a shoutout Friday morning for her theatrics.

She still needs a little bit of work on that flip, but still pretty epic.
