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.
That is a Hall of Fame bat flip. First ballot. Unanimous vote. https://t.co/igyCbXTyM1

Of all things, an ice cream shop in Canada has immortalized the bat flip into chalk form to sell their sweet treats:
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.
