Texas high school outfielder Courtney Hawkins may have been picked 13th overall at the MLB draft on Monday, but he upstaged all the other players on hand.
Just how excited is Hawkins to be joining the Chicago White Sox organization? So excited that he could do a back flip.
And the 6-foot-3, 220-pound player did just that on the draft stage at the MLB Network studios in Secaucus, N.J., after being encouraged by a reporter.
“They said, 'Go do it,' so I went and did it,” Hawkins said.
One person who apparently wasn't too thrilled with the acrobatic stunt was White Sox General Manager Kenny Williams, who spoke to Hawkins right after he landed.
