Is This Professional Baseball?

Over the weekend there was another example of how today's game of baseball is drastically different than the nostalgic era that we love to celebrate.  Have you seen this?  It's a Milwaukee Brewers home run celebration performed by Prince Fielder and his teammates.

Can you imagine Mickey Mantle doing this?  How about Roberto Clemente?  How about Prince's dad Cecil?  No, but is that okay?  The game has obviously changedAre we okay with this display of showmanship?  Is this just how it is today?  Torii Hunter doesn't think so.
