Video Gallery: Catchers Getting Owned
We haven’t done one of these in awhile, so let’s have at it!
Last week, if you were anywhere near the sports blogosphere or pretty much any news station, you saw this incredible clip of Brian Kowacki rounding third base, going airborne and jumping right over the opposing catcher in order to score at home:
But that’s merely one of the many crazy plays at home plate we’re going to compile in a gallery for you fine readers today. First up is a similar move in a game fro 2006 that’s so minor the camera angle is some kind of strange stationary camera from, like what, short center?
Next up we have Fernando Perez on the Durham Bulls (the Tampa Bay Rays minor league affiliate) pulling some insane rope-a-dope on the poor catcher:
Meanwhile, here’s a catcher being an asshole to the umpire behind him:
And to close it out, here’s that famous video of Izzy Alcantara taken offense to a pitch thrown a bit too inside and retorting by drop-kicking the catcher before going after the pitcher. Ask us, and that’s just a smart move. One less person to hold you back.
