Baltimore Orioles closer Felix Bautista is taking the next level.
After the internet went wild with an epic video of New York Mets closer Edwin Diaz’s entrance, the 27-year-old Bautista is now going viral for his new entrance after replacing Jorge Lopez, who was traded to the Minnesota Twins at the trade deadline.
The flamethrowing Orioles rookie tapped into the hearts of Baltimore and walked onto the field with an electric entrance that starts off with Omar’s whistle from The Wire and then adds excitement with some flashing lights.
As you might expect, the fans absolutely loved it.
