Little Leaguer Soars Like Superman Over Catcher to Score
Rules about colliding with the catcher are fuzzy at every level, so one kid decided to take to the sky, instead.
In this video, the runner on third base in the San Marcos Wood Bat Tournament, in San Marcos, Calif., tries to score on a passed ball. It looks like a bang bang play in which he may have to knock over the catcher, but he has other ideas. Namely, he transforms from Clark Kent baserunner to Superman base runner when he jumps over the catcher.
Not only does this kid get some Blake Griffin-esque air below him, but let’s give him props for touching the plate with his hand in one motion on the way down. It almost looks like he’s been practicing this move and he finally had the chance to bust it out and wow everyone in the stands in the process.
