A Savannah Bananas hitter hit a line single with a flaming bat. Like the bat was legit on fire. So sick. pic.twitter.com/7hBqVGM8hL

Baseball purists look away.
The Savannah Bananas are changing the game, literally, they incorporate whatever the hell they want into the game of baseball and make it fun.
Batters announcing themselves as they walk up to the plate, pitchers doing dances before delivering a pitch, having fans be able to record outs in the stands, etc. A literal baseball acid trip. Now they have taken things to the next level and are letting players light their bats on fire.
It seemed to work, my dude hit a line drive WITH A FLAMING BAT.
Take notes, Rob Manfred. It can be like NHL HITZ 2002. If a player has 3 good at-bats during a game they are considered on fire and can use a flaming bat. You’re welcome MLB.
Could backfire though (pun intended) you can’t go up to the plate with a flaming bat and strikeout looking.
