Look Who’s 50! (Jose Bautista)

It’s a glorious day for the Bautista Appreciation Society and Blue Jays fans alike as Jose Bautista hit his 50th home run of the season off Felix Hernandez.

It was a solo shot to left field (surprise, surprise), which now makes that Bautista’s 23rd solo home run of the season. Put that together with 19 2-run home runs, 7 3-run home runs and a grand slam, that gives us 50 glorious Bautista Bombs on the year.

Congratulations to Jose Bautista for reaching this incredible milestone.

    And, hey, would you believe it? When Jose needs to smack a dinger…

    A little bit more on the bomb and it would have landed on my lap. What a great time to decide to move down from the 500's to the home run seats. One of my greatest live and in person moments ever.

    Navin, happiness all around my friend. It's like friggin Christmas morning!

    Roll, as Pat Tabler would say … "you could buy a little more fastballs" (at least, I think that's what he was trying to say before Buck started screaming).

    Jeremy, wow – what a momentous occasion and I'm sure it was nuts when Bautista launched his 50th.
