Watch a naked Jose Bautista swing his baseball bat (almost NSFW)

Don’t worry about Blue Jays slugger Jose Bautista getting ribbed in the clubhouse for his second-place finish at the home run derby. His teammates will be too busy mocking him for this behind-the-scenes video of his nude photo shoot with ESPN. The video, a teaser for ESPN Magazine’s annual Body Issue, shows Joey Bats getting made up and slathered with lotion before swinging a bat in the buff for the cameras. He says that, though he’s proud of his body, the experience was unnerving: “It’s always a little bit awkward when you haven’t done something before, especially when you have to do it with no clothes on.” Even more so when the entire Internet can watch you do it.
