Jose Bautista’s heroics have Anthony Rizzo practicing his bat flips

Thursday October 15th, 2015

See? Not every baseball player hates bat flips.

Jose Bautista’s emphatic lumber disposal left Rangers reliever Sam Dyson’s pouting and whining on Wednesday, but it also seems to have made Cubs slugger Anthony Rizzo a bit envious. 

During batting practice on Thursday, Rizzo took a moment to make sure he was ready to flip his bat if the occasion warrants it. 


That settles it. Bring us a Blue Jays-Cubs World Series so these guys can out-flip each other. 

Good news, here’s another delightful Munenori Kawasaki interview
