Jose Bautista's famous bat flip home run ball can be yours
TORONTO, ON - OCTOBER 14: Jose Bautista #19 of the Toronto Blue Jays throws his bat up in the air after he hits a three-run home run in the seventh inning against the Texas Rangers in game five of the American League Division Series at Rogers Centre on October 14, 2015 in Toronto, Canada.

Three years ago, José Bautista hit one of the most memorable home runs in MLB history. Not just because it broke a 3-3 tie in the seventh inning of an all-deciding ALDS Game 5. But because of a violent, get-off-my-field Joey Bats bat flip up toward the top of the CN Tower.
And now, baseball fans, that ball hit deep into the Roger Centre pandemonium can be yours. It's up for auction and the current bid is for $4,235 -- a number that will probably grow as the Feb. 1 deadline approaches. I'm guessing the bat would fetch an even higher price but I don't think it's come down yet.
