East Tennessee State University junior outfielder Aaron Maher may be remembered for many things before his career is over, but could any of them ever top this? Each time he crosses the plate, he and batboy Gehrig Skole have a special celebration dance that they perform — and it may be the best in the history of baseball.

Gehrig is the son of ETSU head coach Tony Skole, who is not only very trusting, but really excels at naming his kids.
Sadly the Buccaneers lost to Furman, 8-6, in the second game of a doubleheader in the Southern Conference Tournament on Saturday, ending their season. So like Game of Thrones, we’re going to have to wait almost an entire year to see this great show again.
Whole handshake is his idea. Love that little guy. Best bat boy in the nation
