People have come up with some interesting handshake routines nowadays. Especially professional athletes. There are pregame handshakes and there are post game handshakes. There are handshakes in baseball after someone hits a home run and there are handshakes in football after someone scores a touchdown. Recently a handshake routine has surfaced that outshines them all. Every time East Tennessee State’s Aaron Maher crosses home plate, the bat boy who is the coach’s son is there to greet him with a little tradition they have.
Let’s see what Twitter thinks about this epic handshake routine.

This is one of the best things about the college baseball conference tournaments. It introduces us to moments like these we wouldn't normally experience. And this is also what makes college sports the best. It's moments like these that remind us that these guys are having fun and playing for the love of the game. If only professional athletes could get back to this attitude.
