This weekend will more than likely mark the last time Jose Bautista plays as a Toronto Blue Jay in Toronto. (The season doesn’t wrap until Oct 1st but this will be the final home series for the Blue Jays.)
While this hasn’t been a stellar season for Bautista, there’s no denying his place as an All Star Blue Jay. Where he ends up next season? Who knows. Wherever it is, Jose will always be a Blue Jay in my mind.
For me…this will go down as one of the all time great moments in Blue Jays history.
I’ll always remember where I was when “the batflip” happened. I was watching Game 5 of the ALDS and it was a tense game. So much so…I couldn’t sit and watch anymore.
I stood in my kitchen and watched thru the cut out in the wall looking into the living room. Leaning on the cut out like a railing in the West Jet Flight Deck at the Rogers Centre.
