Juan Soto Unlikely To Change His Fun Style And Post-Pitch Shuffle In His Yankees Debut

Juan Soto was the biggest addition for the New York Yankees in the offseason. He surely makes the outfield look stronger in terms of WAR. Last year, the NY side had the second-worst batting average in the league. They were only better than the nine-time champions, the Oakland Athletics. Anyhow, there have been so many problems for the Bronx Bombers to solve in the winter. Indeed, the team needed reinforcement in their offense and outfield. The Dominican superstar has been a solid choice for the most significant reinforcement.

Now, the fans and the organization are eagerly waiting to see the duo of Aaron Judge and Juan Soto. This duo raises the hope of the Yankees Nation for making it to the World Series. Last season was an embarrassment. They could not even make the postseason. On top of that, the NY side finished with a terrible 82-80 record. It was the worst season for the franchise in the last 30 years. But the Soto-Judge combination can really turn things around. Moreover, the fans are eager to see Juan Soto’s fun game style. Even Soto said he won’t change his style at all.

Recently, Jon Heyman of The New York Post mentioned Juan Soto did not really reveal his personal goals about his future in the Bronx. However, Heyman reported that Soto did guarantee a couple of things. First of all, the Dominican slugger will have the famous “Soto Shuffle” in full display at his Yankees debut. Secondly, Juan Soto won’t shy away from flipping his bat whenever the situation arises to please the crowd. Heyman said the Dominican superstar has already been very calm and has a positive presence at the clubhouse.

Moreover, he looks really good at-bat. Recently, Soto’s form has been that of a typical midseason kind. On Sunday, Juan Soto wowed the crowd after hitting a long three-run home run. Later, Soto said he loved every minute of his Yankees debut. He promised it was going to be an enjoyable year. And he also added that he won’t change his fun style including, the post-pitch shuffle. Juan Soto told the New York Post that 100% he’s doing his shuffle every time. Moreover, Soto believes people know that it’s part of his game. Hence, it doesn’t matter if they like or not, he’ll do it. 

The Dominican Star Won’t Get Mad If His Teammates Imitate His Shuffle

Juan Soto mentioned that he enjoyed the moment when his teammate Marcus Stroman imitated his shuffle after striking him out once. He added that he generally tells guys they can do their stuff as he does his stuff. If any pitcher strikes him out big time, they can do whatever they want. It is part of the game.

Hence, Soto won’t get mad. All he will do is tip his cap to say, “I’ll see you next time.” Finally, Juan Soto warns the pitchers not to get mad at him when he hits a home run. It is because the shuffle and bat flip will happen, and it’ll be loud. Moreover, Juan Soto mentioned he’d flip his bat 500 feet in the air.
