Merry Flippin’ Christmas: It’s the Jose Bautista Bat Flip Christmas Sweater

The image of Jose Bautista’s bat flip is one that will remain etched into Blue Jays history forever. And now that very same image has been immortalized in Christmas sweater form.

Yes, via Fresh Brewed Tees, you can now get your very own Jose Bautista bat flip ugly Christmas sweater. They’re branded as “ugly” Christmas sweaters, but this thing is gorgeous.

The sweater also has “Joey to the World” footnote at the very bottom of the sweater, and of course there’s Bautista’s Marucci bat just floating there like a heavenly angel.


I’m having trouble deciding which one’s better though; the Jose Bautista Christmas sweater or the Hotline Bling sweater.

Since there’s a Jose Bautista holiday sweater now, the next logical step would be to have Bautista himself don the sweater and read Christmas stories as he hosts the Joey Bats Christmas Special.

“Gather ’round children, and let me tell you the story of how I emasculated Sam Dyson and Darren O’Day in the same season.”
