Maikel Franco hit a walkoff home run on Thursday night to defeat the Miami Marlins in the bottom of the ninth and send a ball park full of fans home happy.
Maikel did it in style, too.
His body language helping to will the fly ball over the fence followed by the most glorious bat flip will go down as one of the most memorable moments of the season here in Philly.
The group of guys who caught the ball out in left field may have enjoyed it just as much as Maik.
Someone sitting directly behind them captured their moment of pure joy and shared the video to Twitter.

The timing of all of this fun isn't lost on us. The 2008 World Champions of Baseball will fill Citizens Bank Park this weekend just as their 2018 bretheren are finally brining some juice to the yard on a nightly basis. Bat flips while in first place sure are fun.
