Jose Bautista rode scooter home after Blue Jays series win
The King of the bat flip rode his scooter home from the game Wednesday
Blue Jays Game 5 hero Jose Bautista rode his scooter home from his team's spectacular win on Wednesday.
That's right, his scooter.
What a way to exit the Rogers Centre after crushing a three-run homer into the second deck for a 6-3 victory over the Texas Rangers.
Bautista captured the moment on Instagram, saying he was caught "ridin' dirty," a reference to the song "Ridin'" by rapper Chamillionaire.The bat flip king isn't the only Blue Jay with a scooter either.

It all started with his teammate, David Price. The all-star pitcher was known for riding a scooter back and forth between his place and the ballpark when he played for the Detroit Tigers.
Price didn't kick the habit when he got to Toronto. Soon after he was traded to the Blue Jays, he bought scooters for his teammates while on the road in New York.
The Blue Jays take the field for Game 1 of the American League Division Series against the Royals in Kansas City tonight.
First pitch is at 8:07 p.m. ET, Marco Estrada takes the hill for Toronto, while Kansas City counts on Edinson Volquez.
