Ball from Bautista’s bat flip sells at auction for $28,000

The home-run ball that prompted Jose Bautista’s notorious bat flip in 2015 has sold at auction for more than $28,000.

According to the Lelands Auction House website Saturday, there were 17 bids. The winning one went for $28,252.

The home run at Rogers Centre came during the seventh inning of Game 5 of the American League Division Series between the Toronto Blue Jays and Texas Rangers.

Wondering if this will summon a couple of posters who’ve been gone a long while….

Jose Bautista’s name inspires new beetle species

Meet the Joey Bats beetle.

Former Toronto Blue Jays slugger Jose Bautista has inspired the name of a new weevil species that ain’t so pretty to look but bears his name proudly. (We think.)

The tiny black insect with a long snout from the Dominican Republic, Bautista’s home nation, has now been scientifically recorded as Sicoderus Bautistai.

[Insert jokes here]
