In baseball showboating is frowned upon, celebrating isn’t liked much, anything that could be seen as showing up an opponent is viewed as terrible. But why?
If you hit a homerun, I believe you should celebrate it. In hockey, soccer and I believe even a bit in the NFL there are celebration when a player scores a goal or touchdown. So why don’t we do that in baseball?
Bryce Harper had to take his streaky eye-black look out. In the Little League World Series almost every kid who had eye black had made it look like Bryce Harper’s, it gave Bryce Harper some publicity and made kids idolize him a bit. But why doesn’t baseball allow for it?
I would like to hear some of the opinions on this.
