This kid dressed up as Jose Bautista and might have somehow psychically willed the Blue Jays star’s game-winning homer.
There are a lot of cute kids who attend baseball games and do awesome, funny things and get recognized for them. We appreciate those young fans.
But this is some next-level stuff out of Toronto. Like, seriously chilling in the otherworldly sense.
Watch this video below. These were some M. Night Shyamalan-type shenanigans. First of all, this kid is awesome and has a fake beard and a Blue Jays shirsey and a flat-brimmed hat. He has the stance down. He observes from the stands. He takes a swing.
And then, WHAT??? Joey Bats goes deep as this kid follows through. The crowd loses it. The Blue Jays go up 6–3. This kid is having the time of his life.
This kid may be responsible for the outcome of this game. He could maybe star in a very loose Like Mike baseball movie starring Bautista. This kid may be our new overlord and human evolution may have taken another step forward.
This kid needs a ticket to the ALCS, pronto.
If he looks familiar, that’s because #MiniBautista has been around the team before. A lot, in fact.
