He is currently one of the biggest names in MLB baseball, and he also in one of the MLB’s biggest dancers. No, we’re not talking about off the field, we’re talking about on the field, at the plate, in what has become known as the “Soto Shuffle”, or “Soto Shimmy”. Baseball fans certainly know of Juan Soto, who recently was traded from the Washington Nationals to the San Diego Padres. Juan is not only known for his amazing batting skills, but nearly as much for the “dance” he performs after most pitches.
Extending his legs, Soto then shuffles them back and forth, often staring at the pitcher, as he flicks his right shoulder up and pulls up at his crotch. Against the Rays the other night, however, Soto really let lose, channeling some inner Elvis Presley (#1 FEAR) hip shaking in what initially looks like a “twerk”, but if you look closely, you’ll notice that only his hips and core are moving back and forth. It’s actually quite amazing as you watch the slow-motion footage provided below. Remember, #1s have the ability to move/control their bodies in rhythm unlike any other Brain Type. When batting, Soto certainly has a surge of power coursing through his body as he amps-up for each pitch. After the pitch, one could say the “dance” is his way of letting all that pent-up energy loose. In a real sense, Juan can hardly help it. Elvis once said, “Rock and roll music, if you like it, if you feel it, you can’t help but move to it. That’s what happens to me. I can’t help it.”
Our viewers can take a look for themselves.
