Blue Jays go all-out on Edwin Encarnacion's parrot trot

Edwin Encarnacion and his parrot is not a new phenomenon. The Toronto Blue Jays slugger has been "taking the parrot for a walk" as he rounds the bases after a home run for a few years now, but we've never seen the "Edwing" like this.

Fans attending Wednesday's game at Rogers Centre against the Arizona Diamondbacks received t-shirts celebrating Encarnacion's beloved trot.

So, of course, Encarnacion rewarded the fans with a solo shot in a 5-2 win, his 19th homer of the season, much to the delight of his teammates and manager. Ezequiel Carrera showed his appreciation in the dugout with a stuffed parrot.

While John Gibbons got in on the fun in his postgame press conference, wearing one of the shirts and showing off how he does the "Edwing."

There's no arguing, though, that Encarnacion does it best. And the more the Blue Jays see of that parrot this summer, the better chance they have to defend their American League East title.
