Why do baseball players throw their helmet toward home plate after a game-winning home run?

Asked by hoopski (49points) May 17th, 2010

I just saw Marcus Thames do this after hitting a game-winning shot off Jonathan Papelbon. Is it like spiking a football in the end zone? Is there some specific reason why it’s done?
