Custom framed 8×10 photo with Jays pin and plate. With the Blue Jays having just tied the game with the Rangers at 3-3 in the seventh, and with the crowd at a fever pitch in the midst of one of the wildest innings in recent MLB history, Bautista hit a three-run, no-doubt-about-it blast to left that put the Blue Jays up 6-3 and ultimately assured Toronto its first ALCS berth since 1993. It was the bat-flip seen around the world.
Bautista said: “I can’t really remember what was going through my mind, to be quite honest with you. After I made contact … I just enjoyed the moment, rounded the bases, got to the dugout. And after all the guys stopped punching me and hitting me is when I kind of started realizing what had happened. I knew I did something great for the team at the moment of impact because I knew I hit that ball pretty good, and I gave us the lead in a crucial moment so I was happy to do that.” Jose Bautista
