Outfielder Courtney Hawkins was so happy to be drafted in the first round by the Chicago White Sox that he could do a backflip! And that’s exactly what he did.
Let that be a lesson for all of you. Never admit how happy are or the media will force you to prove it.
Courtney Hawkins has power, speed, & when he pitched, a 90 mph fastball. Then he does a backflip in a suit. Somewhere, Bo Jackson is smiling

And Courtney Hawkins does a backflip in the MLB studios with his suit and dress shoes on. No big deal.

No chance a just-drafted NFL player does a backflip 2 minutes later live at the draft. Go Courtney Hawkins!

Courtney Hawkins just did a backflip here at MLB Studios a minute after getting picked by White Sox. Crowd here went wild.

It would been embarrassing if Courtney Hawkins got injured doing that backflip.

Finding a way to create the new White Sox "Courtney Hawkins Dance" girls ask the guys and when the guy gets picked he has to do a back flip.
