Jose Bautista's Legendary Bat Flip Added to 'NHL 17' as Goal Celebration

The most memorable celebration in recent MLB history has been immortalized by way of a video game.

Well, another video game—and probably not one you'd assume.

Toronto Blue Jays star Jose Bautista's authoritative bat flip after hitting a go-ahead home run against the Texas Rangers in Game 5 of the 2015 American League Division Series won't soon be forgotten. That's also partly due to the fact it was featured in MLB The Show 16.

Now, even hockey fans will be getting in on the fun.

Bautista's (swing and) bat flip has been added to EA Sports' NHL 17 as a goal celebration. Because it just needed to be done.
