Someone just created a bat-flipping SnowBautista in Calgary

Calgary’s no stranger to snow — that has become pretty clear over the past few days.

With snow comes snowmen, and with snowmen comes the creation of the occasional Snow-Something-Else.

However, it looks like the ante has already been upped, and we’re not even officially in winter 2018/2019 yet!

Local Calgarian Christ Ripley posted a photo of his SnowBautista creation to Twitter on Wednesday, complete with the bat-flip made iconic during game five in the 2015 ALDS.

The bat-flip quickly became an internet meme, with various depictions of Bautista being shared online, and even landing him on the cover of Golden Grahams Crunch cereal boxes.

Now the flip will live on through Ripley’s snowy creation — at least until the next chinook, that is!
