Did Alex Bergman need to apologize for celebrating his home run?

Houston Astros' Alex Bregman hit a go-ahead home run in the first inning of World Series Game 6 and celebrated with the anti-bat flip, carrying his bat to first base. Baseball fans went wild, with some loving the new celebration. Even his opponent, Washington's Juan Soto, loved it so much, he emulated it when he hit his own go-ahead in the same game! Others chided him for being unprofessional and Bergman apologized for his action. Did he need to do that? ⚾

There's celebrating and then there's showing up. Bregman had no reason to act like a child and carry his bat to first base. He is a professional baseball player who has kids who look up to him. He shouldn't celebrate like an arrogant meathead. 

Bregman made himself look bad and the Astros look bad. He needed to apologize for it.

The olds are at it again. Policing fun like sports aren't meant to be enjoyed. Baseball needs to attract a younger audience and showing a little emotion isn't bad. In fact, it makes baseball enjoyable.

Bregman added an original spin on the home run celebration and it should be admired not admonished. He shouldn't have apologized and he shouldn't have to apologize.
