In recent years in Major League Baseball, teams have begun to use props to celebrate their home runs.

The last couple of years, the Toronto Blue Jays had a home run jacket, which featured the nation's flags of those on the roster, but opted to retire it ahead of the 2023 season.

Several other teams this season have begun to use props, including the Seattle Mariners, who have gold trident. But the Detroit Tigers, who play in the American League Central Division, certainly take the cake when it comes to home run celebrations, as there's is hockey related.

Following a home run, a Tigers player will don a CCM Detroit Red Wings helmet and grab a hockey stick, which is in the dugout, and pretend their shooting a puck. Check out infielder Zach McKinstry's celebration following his home run on Saturday against the Baltimore Orioles in the video below!
