Tigers' Justin Upton launches home run into the Phillies' tiki bar

New, comments

Upton's first home run of the spring should probably count for two or three dingers.

When the Detroit Tigers signed Justin Upton, fans were promised a streaky hitter who bats for a decent average, draws walks, and hits a lot of home runs. Upton has endured a rough spring with the Tigers, hitting .198 with a .333 on-base percentage.

Fortunately, he broke out in a big way on Saturday against the Philadelphia Phillies. Unfortunately, he may have endangered a bartender or two in the process.

Now, before you question whether that possibly-flattened structure is actually a tiki bar, our interns (a.k.a. Kurt) found proof that our claims are correct.

It's possible that the Tigers land in Detroit before that ball does.
