Pitcher Sam Dyson wasn’t too happy with Jose Bautista’s bat flip, but other hitters in Major League Baseball already are trying to imitate it.
In case you missed it, the Toronto Blue Jays right fielder sent a three-run home run to the moon in Game 5 of their American League Division Series with the Texas Rangers on Wednesday, giving the Jays a 6-3 win and punching their ticket to the AL Championship Series. Bautista also unleashed an epic bat flip that caused some controversy.
But Chicago Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo showed during practice Thursday that he was just fine with it.
Rizzo’s bat flip obviously wasn’t as impressive as Bautista’s because it didn’t come with a huge homer, but it’s a pretty solid runner-up.
