Bautista hits Jays record 48th HR

BY foxsports • September 17, 2010

Jose Bautista's the new Toronto Blue Jays season home run king.

Bautista hit his 48th homer of the year Friday night against the Boston Red Sox, breaking the franchise mark of 47 set by George Bell in 1987.

Bautista's two-run shot in the sixth inning cleared the Green Monster and landed in the seats. A fan threw it back on the field, and the Red Sox relayed it back to the Blue Jays dugout.

Bautista's 48 homers leads the majors, and it's the most in the AL since Alex Rodriguez hit 54 in 2007.
