Jose Bautista’s Bat Flip: Legendary Enough To Sell Ice Cream

Jose Bautista’s home run in Game 5 of the ALDS yesterday will go down in baseball lore … in large part for the timing and the importance. But also just as much for the bat flip of all bat flips.

Both the flip and the signage are works of art. I bow to thee, Ed’s Real Scoop. But now I’d like to see Bautista distribute ice cream in just this manner. Now that would be legendary.
