It's difficult to conceive of a more impressive bat flip than the one Florida State's Quincy Nieporte unleashed in Tuesday night's game against Florida. 

With the game tied 3-3 in the bottom of the 12th, Nieporte stepped to the plate and launched the first pitch he saw deep into the Tallahassee night. The ball wasn't even halfway to the fence before Nieporte hurled his bat down the first base line. He even skipped toward home plate, just for good measure.
