Watch: Phillie Phanatic proves he is more fit than Jose Bautista

Sunday March 13th, 2016

The Phillie Phanatic and Blue Jays outfielder Jose Bautista had themselves a little fitness contest on Saturday

After handstands, pushups and various other exercises, the Phillies mascot proved to be incredibly fit.

This was a pretty impressive handstand in a losing effort from Joey Bats, who was just trying to have some fun without upsetting any former ballplayers.

One question—what was the Phanatic doing here?

The Phanatic is in amazing shape. If only the Phillies could say the same.
