There were many heroes in the Blue Jays' stunning win over the Texas Rangers in the American League Division Series on Wednesday night, but the team's stars were hailed for returning to the field and celebrating with fans after the game.

Knuckeballer R.A. Dickey walked along the infield high-fiving fans in the stands at Rogers Centre before finally jumping into the crowd for a bear hug.

"It's awesome, it's all I can say," Dickey said before jogging back toward the dugout and into the locker-room.

The playoff game's starting pitcher, Marcus Stroman, also came out to salute fans, as did David Price, Edwin Encarnacion, Jose Bautista and others. Some brought bottles of champagne onto the field to spray on fans.
