Jose Bautista Hits the Charts with Two Songs

You know you’ve made it in the world of Major League Baseball when there’s not just one, but two songs released about you in the same week.

I’m sure by now you’ve seen the “Jose Bautista Clutch Single” above courtesy of the MLB Fan Cave, and I actually think it’s got a pretty catch hook … it kind of has a Boyz II Me/Jagged Edge vibe to it.

Interestingly enough though, that’s not the first time Buck Martinez’ voice has been auto-tuned, don’t forget that the first video to lay that claim is “We No Speak No Encarnacion (The Edwin Encarnacion Song)“.


Then to add to that, an MC out of Toronto who goes by Crossword, comes out with “Bang it Like Bautista“. And I’m always a sucker for any similes involving my favourite baseball player.

So check out both tracks from earlier this week, but I’m still waiting for one rapper from Toronto to mention Jose Bautista on his new album. Make it happen, Drake!
