WATCH: Jose Bautista hits a home run left-handed during batting practice
The Blue Jays seem pretty loose before Game 5 of the ALCS
TORONTO -- The Blue Jays are facing elimination in Game 5 of the ALCS on Wednesday, but you wouldn't know it by being around the team. They're loose and ready to play.
In fact, prior to Game 5, a bunch of Blue Jays players were messing around during batting practice. The normally right-handed hitting Jose Bautista took some hacks left-handed, and he even hit a home run. Check it out:

That's mighty impressive. I'm right-handed and can barely write a few letters legibly left-handed. I couldn't imagine stepping into the box and even making contact left-handed, nevermind hitting a ball out of park. Pretty cool.
