Bautista has yet to pay for a meal or drink in Toronto since the bat flip.
Jose Bautista says that he has not paid for a meal in Toronto since hitting the go-ahead home run in Game 5 of the American League division series that sent the Blue Jays to the American League Championship Series.
“After the bat flip, did you ever have to pay for another drink or another meal in the city of Toronto?” Philadelphia 76ers guard Nik Staukas asked on behalf of TSN.
“I haven't had to yet,” Bautista said. “So we'll see if that changes. Hopefully not.”
Bautista was in attendance for NBA All-Star Game festivities over the weekend. The Blue Jays will play their first spring training game on March 2 against the Philadelphia Phillies.
