PHOTO: Kid skips school for Blue Jays game

Some things are worth skipping school.

Unless the Toronto Blue Jays go on to win the next two games, Game 5 of the ALCS will mark the final home game in Toronto.

When you haven't been to the playoffs since 1983, playoff games become a valued commodity. Apparently, more valuable than school.

A kid attending Game 5 at the Rogers Centre sporting a sign saying, “I skipped school so I could watch Bautista hit a home run.”

While his wish didn't come true, the Blue Jays went on to win the game — and stay alive in the playoffs.

Here's to hoping there's another opportunity for this kid to skip class for a Jays game in 2015.

If Joey Bats hits that homer, make sure to hit the books! Let’s go @BlueJays! #ComeTogether
