The adrenaline was really flowing for San Diego Padres pitcher Christian Friedrich.
The 29-year-old showed off some moves on Wednesday during a Major League Baseball spring-training warm-up in Goodyear, Ariz., that will make him a hero among dancing dads everywhere.
While his fellow athletes were performing side bends and stretches, he displayed a routine that was truly his own.
“Let Christian show you how to do this,” the official Twitter account for the team captioned a video clip of Friedrich’s mastery of the booty pop — set to the soundtrack of the Technotronic classic “Shake That Body.”

The Nike-clad pitcher shimmied and bounced his butt with such gusto that spectators and teammates showered him with applause, to which he responded by tipping his hat and flashing a thumb up.
The Padres played the Cincinnati Reds during the spring training game, losing 7-8.
