An Audio and Visual Tribute to Jose Bautista’s 48 Home Runs


Click image to enlarge

Unfortunately this tribute is about a day too late since Jose Bautista already hit his 49th home run of the season, but here it is nonetheless.

It’s an audio and visual 48 Bomb Salute to Jose Bautista breaking the single season home run record in Blue Jays franchise history and to honour this incredible feat.

There is a screencap for each and every of the 48 home runs, from his first of the season on April 11th against Kevin Millwood, to the record-breaking bomb off Michael Bowden this past Friday night.


And for the audio portion of this tribute to Jose Bautista, relive the magic from all those Bautista Bombs with the audio from all of Buck Martinez’ home run calls set to Jose Bautista’s walk-up music.

There isn’t a better guy this could have happened to this season, so congratulations to Jose Bautista for breaking George Bell’s franchise record for home runs in a single season.

    Navin, thanks man! The one thing I learned when putting this together was Buck Martinez home run calls get very redundant after a while – "there's a drive, left field, and this one is outta here!"

    My favourite one is where Buck cuts off Pat Tabler completely – "THERE'S A FASTBALL!"

    Personally I liked the one where Buck messed up. More specifically the "Popffffth li…fly ball, left field. This one is waaaaay outta here!"

    Greg, there was actually one where Buck Martinez called Bautista "Escobar", but I edited it out.

    haha yes! I remember that one too. I have to grab sound clips for the opening of every podcast. Just sit there shaking my head half the time.

    One thing's for sure though, when Buck Martinez calls a home run … you get excited. I love the enthusiasm in his voice – it's like he's screaming inside a packed bar or something.
