During the totally insane seventh inning in Game 5 of the ALDS between Toronto and Texas, Blue Jays outfielder Jose Bautista hit a baseball approximately 10,000 feet. The tater sealed the game and series for Toronto, who went on to win 6-3. The best part came right after Bautista made contact with the ball; he immediately knew that he hit it to Jupiter, so he unleashed quite possibly the most vicious bat flip in baseball history.
Sure, some Rangers players weren’t fans of Bautista’s bat flip, but for the most part, people loved the celebration – especially the kid who dressed just like Joey Bats and predicted the dinger right before it happened. In fact, one person loved it more than anyone else and decided to show their appreciation by getting an amazingly detailed Jose Bautista bat flip tattoo.
There really are no words to describe how amazing this thing is – a person got a tattoo of a baseball player doing the most wonderfully disrespectful thing possible a day after it happened – so we’ll just let Bautista sum up his feelings, via his Instagram account.

Toronto will take on Kansas City in the ALCS starting on Friday. There’s no word on what tattoo this person will get if the Blue Jays win the World Series, but it’s safe to say that it will be spectacular.
