Animated: Blue Jays fan celebrates, freaks out the world after catching bat

Boston has Stephen King. Cleveland has Drew Carey. Toronto has Geddy Lee…and now this guy, the recipient of a wayward Jason Kipnis bat in the first inning of Tuesday’s Opening Day loss to the Cleveland Indians.


It’s a way of life. Even the guy behind him wants to pretend he is a crazy man with a bat. Toronto: Poutine and air bat. Bonus points for choking up.
