Retro Blue Jays – The First Bautista Bomb

May 1, 2014

Posted by MLB’s YouTube page

The Blue Jays will travel to Pittsburgh for a three-game series this weekend. Two years ago, I visited PNC Park and it took my breath away. It is a gorgeous stadium. If you’re planning a baseball road trip, make sure you include a Pirates game.

Before being traded to the Jays in 2008, Jose Bautista spent the majority of his major league career with the Pirates. He made his MLB debut in 2004, but it wasn’t until 2006 that he hit his first big-league homerun.

The first-ever “Bautista Bomb” occurred on May 13, 2006. According to Baseball-Reference.com, Joey Bats batted in the leadoff spot and played third for Pittsburgh. In the third inning, he hit a 2-run shot off of Florida Marlins starter Scott Olsen.  Despite the blast, the Pirates lost the match, 4-3. Bautista went 1/5, collecting two RBIs and two strikeouts.
