Jose Bautista: Comic Book Hero

Somewhere in the annals of Blue Jay History, Jose Bautista became Elevated. Many of you just read that sentence and thought “I know, it was when he did The Bat Flip!” and I respect that. I will challenge you, though, to take yourself back in time to that moment. The one just before The Bat Flip. When the Blue Jays were down, at home, in an elimination playoff game. What were...

Jose Bautista Has a Knack for Coming up with the ‘Big Hit’

For many, the lasting image from the Toronto Blue Jays’ 2015 postseason was this; Jose Bautista ceremoniously flinging his bat in the air after a no-doubter home run off Sam Dyson in Game 5 of the ALDS. That home run crushed the playoff aspirations of the Texas Rangers and simultaneously exorcised the Toronto Blue Jays’ playoff demons. Without that home run by Jose Bautista,...

WATCH: Jose Bautista does backwards home run trot to admire dinger

Toronto Blue Jays slugger Jose Bautista is just as good at celebrating home runs as he is hitting them. Bautista delivered one of the most epic bat flips we’ve ever seen last season, but he changed his tune a bit during Wednesday night’s game. This time, after hitting a game-tying home run in the ninth inning, he elected to do a backwards trot down the first-base line to celebrate...

Blue Jays present David Ortiz with most Canadian retirement gift ever

David Ortiz always has had a hot bat at Rogers Centre, and after Friday, he’ll be able to keep the rest of himself warm, too.

Jose Bautista bat flip lives on with Canadian corn maze

It’s been nearly a year since Jose Bautista launched his bat into the air in Game 5 of the American League Division Series against the Texas Rangers. However, the memory hasn’t been lost from one cornfield in Canada. As is customary, this cornfield came up with a corn maze for this upcoming fall.

Jose Bautista gets bat flip corn field maze

Jose Bautista has hit plenty of home runs in his career. But he’ll be remembered forever for his batflip after hitting the eventual game-winning home run in Game 5 of the 2015 ALDS against the Texas Rangers. Someone — who’s obviously a Toronto Blue Jays fan — decided to immortalize that moment with a corn maze. Never thought we'd say this, but … Joey Batflip is now a Joey...

Jose Bautista bat flip now a goal celebration in ‘NHL 17’ (vid)

Jose Bautista’s majestic — and ultimately controversial — bat flip during the playoffs last season has become one of the more iconic scenes in recent postseason baseball history. So much so, in fact, that the Toronto Blue Jays slugger’s emphatic lumber toss isn’t only a celebration reserved for the major leagues … well, at least in video game form. The creators of...

Jose Bautista gets standing ovation from Blue Jays fans

The Blue Jays returned home from Texas for a series against the Rays and what awaited Jose Bautista was an extremely warm welcome. Bautista was, of course, involved in an incident with Rougned Odor during Sunday’s game against the Rangers in which Bautista was punched in the face by a wicked right hook. After the game, the Blue Jays slugger admitted Odor got him pretty good, but...
