It was unbelievable. When Jose Bautista hit that ball 430 feet into centre field, it was the best sports moment I've ever experienced live. Unfortunately I wasn't alive in 1992 and 1993. But I started to follow the Jays as a kid , the days of Roy Halladay and Carlos Delgado - the early 2000s. Finally, the Jays are in the postseason and have a legitimate chance of winning it all.
Yet times during this game 5, it seemed like our season would be tragically over, especially after the fluky ball off the bat. But little did I know what the bottom of the 7th inning had in store. Not only did we tie the game but Bautista's home run sent shockwaves throughout the stadium, an atmosphere I've never experienced before.
I made an impulse decision the night before to train to Toronto from Kingston just for this game, and I don't regret it one bit. Here are some photos from this historic day.
