Jose Bautista may be better, but not buffer than Brady Anderson (Video)

Last Thursday, Jose Bautista became the 27th player in Major League Baseball history to hit 50 or more home runs in a single season after belting a solo shot of Felix Hernandez in the bottom of the 1st inning.  However, Bautista wasn’t quite done breaking records.

The following day, Bautista launched two more home runs against the Mariners, bringing his season total to 52.  With that 52nd home run, Bautista set a new Major League record for the largest, single season increase in home runs in sequential years.
