On Friday night the Toronto Blue Jays took the field for a Spring Training game against the New York Mets in Olympic Stadium in Montreal. In an atmosphere full of buzz and excitement, Blue Jays’ slugger Jose Bautista continued his ridiculously hot production this spring.
Facing prospect Jenry Mejia, Bautista got a pitch to handle and launched it into the left-center field seats.
Health is the main question for Bautista, while the Blue Jays will have to see if their relatively quiet off-season will shut them out of the picture in the crowded American League East. But for now, Bautista has spent the spring reminding the baseball world just how powerful he is when he’s right.
