The world of baseball seems to be asleep this afternoon, so let’s watch a base runner eat dirt!

    A little reminiscent of Matt Holliday’s face plant in the 2007 NL Wild Card game:

      And he still hasn’t touched the plate.

        He was never tagged out either.

    Notice the way he threw his legs up in the air when he slid?

    Willie Mays Hayes kind of slide. Somehow I was expecting him to hit his jaw on home plate.

    OK, he gets rather low marks for artistic merit, but at least he didn’t run himself into, say, oh, a triple play.

    Its weird to see a player with the number 42

      South Korea has long standing admiration for Jackie Robinson breakin the barrier in Baseball, the movie “42” was very well received in South Korea makin it the most popular Baseball movie topic alongside with the movie “Kano” and “Mr. Go” in their country.
