GIF: Kevin Pillar’s Leg Kick in Action

It didn’t take Kevin Pillar very long to make his presence known in Montreal – in the Blue Jays’ first at bat against the Red Sox, Pillar went yard with a home run to deep left field.

For a brief moment, I didn’t even think it was Kevin Pillar, though. If you only watched his bottom half, you might’ve sworn it was another player on the Blue Jays – perhaps Jose Bautista, Josh Donaldson or even Troy Tulowitzki?

Yes, Pillar had his brand new leg kick in full effect, and it almost perfectly mimicked Jose Bautista’s at the plate. Check out the GIF below.
