As a right fielder, Jose Bautista makes a fine ambassador.

As a member of the Blue Jays, Bautista proudly wears the team colours as well as flying the Canadian flag.

On Sunday, Bautista was named to the all-star team and will be in the lineup for the game a week Tuesday in Kansas City.

"I think the bottom line here is that everybody wants to win," Bautista said. "The fans want to see wins, I want to win. After I do my job on the field I have to say what's on my mind and just be honest and that's what I've been doing ever since I got here.
