GIFS: Edwin Encarnacion’s Epic Walk-Off Home Run

What else is there to say about the Toronto Blue Jays right now? The past week, they’ve thrived in situations where a big hit as been required; and Edwin Encarnacion certainly delivered one of those against the Miami Marlins.

It’s find of funny because the Blue Jays were battling with the likes of an Angel Hernandez strike zone all night, but ultimately Edwin Encarnacion took matters into his own hands and forewent the strike zone altogether.

Edwin made it a point to reiterate to his teammates that he was still nursing a sore shoulder after he just received a cortisone shot. They really didn’t seem to take it any easier on him anyway.

Lastly, here’s EE’s full reaction out of the batter’s box. Notice that he strolls down the first base line with the bat in hand, then at the very last second he cocks his wrist, flips his bat and then seamlessly transitions into his signature “walk the parrot” move. Classic.

Ian has been writing about the Toronto Blue Jays since 2007. He enjoyed the tail-end of the Roy Halladay era and vividly remembers the Alex Rodriguez "mine" incident. He'll also retell the story of Game 5 of the 2015 ALDS to his kids for the next 20 years.
