Opening Hours

Mon - Fri: 7AM - 7PM

Jose Batista, who drew the most attention in Major League Baseball (MLB) with his bat flip, will leave the ground. For him leaving, the Toronto Blue Jays, where he shone the most, set the stage.

Batista signed a one-day contract with his former team Toronto for his retirement ceremony on the 12th (Korea Standard Time). Batista’s 먹튀검증 retirement ceremony will be held ahead of the 2023 MLB regular season home game against the Chicago Cubs at Rogers Center in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, on the 13th. It is also a day before Ryu Hyun-jin’s appearance.

Batista was the iconic star of Toronto in the 2010s. He made his big league debut in 2004 with the Baltimore Orioles, but has since wandered around the Kansas City Royals and Pittsburgh Pirates. After reaching Toronto in 2008, he suddenly turned into a special hitter representing the league in 2010. In 2010, he became the home run king with 54 home runs, followed by a batting average of 0.302 43 home runs and a slugging percentage of 0.608 OPS (the sum of on-base percentage and slugging percentage) in 2011, ranking first in home runs, slugging percentage, and OPS. From 2010 to 2015, he reigned as a slugger with an average of 38 home runs, and Toronto also played as a strong team to reach autumn baseball during Batista’s heyday.

It was a famous scene in autumn baseball that was hotter than the performance. Batista hit a winning three-run home run in the bottom of the seventh inning when he faced the Texas Rangers 3-3 in Game 5 of the American League Division Series on October 15, 2015. It was a shot to sink Texas, which had better regular-season performance.

It wasn’t over with a home run. Batista himself looked at the mound for a while as if he had guessed it would be the final home run, and threw the bat in the air with an arrogant look over the time difference. The dramatic home run was further developed into the scene of the century thanks to Batista’s showmanship.

However, there were also grudges. Unlike the KBO League, in MLB, looking at the ball and hitting a home run are also “disrespectful.” For Texas, which ended the fall that year with this home run, it was a more bitter scene, which led to revenge the following year. On May 16, 2016, batista slid roughly to second base in the eighth inning of an away game against Texas, and Texas Rugged Odor, who still remembered the fall, flew a strong sponge at batista’s face.

Batista made a rough slide to second base in the eighth inning of an on – visit game against Texas on may 16, 2016, when Texas infielder lugned odore hit a strong punch to batista’s face. Veteran Batista was hit by Odor, who is in his third year since his debut, making it as big a topic as his “badun.”

Meanwhile, Batista played in Toronto until 2017, but later had a relatively difficult end-of-life, going back and forth between three teams in 2018, and later failed to return to MLB. As he continued his career in his native Dominican Republic, he was out of MLB fans’ sight. Because of this, it was not clear whether he would retire, and Batista announced his contract with Toronto, saying, “Everyone (already) knows I’m retired, but I wanted to make it official.”
