No one has ever said Chuck Blackmon reminded them of Mike Trout, but that came to a crashing/sliding halt last night. Blackmon pulled out all the stops and even his lead leg too, somehow-someway avoiding the would-be tag.
It’s especially impressive considering his very own teammate, Brandon Barnes, doesn’t quite grasp the concept of baserunning… let alone all those fancy ninja tricks.
I thought 2015 was the Year of the Foul Ball Baby Catch but maybe I had it all wrong. I mean what’s more exciting in baseball than baserunning antics right? Play me off here Mikey!
Tough call between Blackmon and Trout for #1 slide but thankfully we have Jean Segura to blow them both off the field. L8R H8Rz!
