Bat Flips and Maple Dips

Bat Flips and Maple Dips started in 2018 after Justin and Patrick met online and began a passionate discussion about Canadian baseball and the Toronto Blue Jays. After well over 100 episodes the guys are still going strong and have interviewed Sportsnet’s Dan Shulman, Blue Jays pitcher Ross Stripling, MLB.com’s Keegan Matheson, Jays Journal’s Chris Henderson, CBC’s Devin Heroux, Saskatchewan baseball alum and Pirates draft pick Logan Hofmann & other great guests.

Teoscar Hernandez has been traded.  Justin and Patrick are here to discuss the return and the impact of losing Teo's bat in the lineup.  Alek Manoah finished 3rd in AL Cy Young voting, and the Jays made some 40-man roster moves.

Justin Anderson

Justin fell in love with baseball watching Roy Halladay and Carlos Delgado as a young kid in Saskatchewan. Justin figured it out at age 12 that he wasn’t a very good ballplayer but loved the game so much that he became an umpire. Justin continues to umpire men’s baseball in Saskatoon and provincial championships. His goal is to work a Canada Cup and an international event as an umpire.

Patrick Marsh

Patrick has always been a sports fanatic but baseball holds a special place in his heart. After playing baseball as a child he continued his passion as a lifelong Blue Jays fan from the championships in 1992 & 1993 to the fabled bat flip of 2015 and on to the present day. His passion led to a short stint blogging before the creation of Bat Flips and Maple Dips in 2018.
