Salvador Perez nearly trips over own bat

Perez took a few extra steps with the bat before letting go of it. As a result, Perez accidentally did a reverse bat flip and the bat followed him up the baseline, hitting both of his heels and causing him to stumble halfway to first. Fortunately, Perez was able to stay on his feet and avoid complete embarrassment.
