His former members who gathered to congratulate José Batista unanimously praised him.

On the 13th (Korean time), ahead of the home game against the Chicago Cubs held at the Rogers Center in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, Batista had an induction ceremony for the club’s Hall of Fame, ‘Level of Excellence’.스포츠토토

Batista played for the Blue Jays for 10 years after being traded to Toronto midway through 2008, with six All-Stars, three Silver Sluggers and two postseasons.

The bat flip he showed after hitting the final three-run home run in Game 5 of the Division Series against the Texas Rangers in 2015 remains the most dramatic bat flip in major league history.

Devon Travis, who worked with Toronto from 2015 to 2018, said, “He changed baseball.” Isn’t it different now?” he said of Batista’s specialness.

What makes Batista special is probably not just because he threw the bat. “Baseball is a difficult sport, and it’s not easy to say to an opposing pitcher, ‘Look, I’m going to do something scary,'” Travis said. He is a player who can do that every day.”

Russell Martin, who was also on the team with Batista from 2015 to 2018, said, “Batista was a special player even in college. He threw 95 mph on the mound and hit 450 feet at the plate,” he said, recognizing Batista’s talent from an early age.

He continued, “The great thing about him is that he has slowly improved since entering the league. He wasn’t a superstar from the start. It started to explode after coming to this team. He is a player who can be called the face of this team.”

He also faced him as a catcher for another team. It was fine though.” Of course, he was waiting for Edwin Encarnacion at the next plate,” he laughed.

Justin Smock, who has played with Batista since 2015, said, “The really cool thing about Batista is he’s such a nice guy in the clubhouse, and once the lights came on, I thought, ‘Where the hell is this guy from?’ That’s how competitive it was,” he said of Batista’s fighting spirit. “He is a smart player. He knew what he was doing,” recalled his old colleague.
