Toronto hero Jose Bautista rode a scooter home from the ballpark

Thursday October 15th, 2015

What’s the appropriate way for Jose Bautista to leave Rogers Centre after his colossal three-run homer? Carried on the shoulders of his teammates? In a stretch limousine? Crowd surfing through the streets? Nah, Joey Bats rolled home on a scooter. 

This is awesome, from last night after the game. "How A Hero Goes Home" (: @kingermr)

And it’s definitely not a imposter. Bautista himself confirmed that’s him in the photo.

Now we just have to wait for the detractors who say riding a scooter is disrespectful to the game.
