Anthony Rizzo tries his own epic bat flip in batting practice

If you missed the Toronto Blue Jays and Texas Rangers legendary finish to their ALDS matchup, you missed quite a show.

The Jays slugger Jose Bautista ended the Rangers run at postseason glory with a monster home run shot — which he followed up with a huge bat flip.

As one could deduce, the Rangers weren’t very pleased with Bautista’s showmanship and confrontations ensued during the Jays’ 6-3 victory Wednesday.

While the Cubs wouldn’t see Toronto until the World Series — if both teams were to advance that far — first baseman Anthony Rizzo is trying to perfect his version of the epic bat flip.

If Rizzo hits a home run to send the Cubbies into the World Series, it’s good to know he’ll have that moment immortalized with an epic pose.

Hopefully it doesn’t mean he’ll be the victim of bean ball aimed a little too high to the brain.
