If the player’s got the baseball and you can’t go
underneath him, there’s only one thing to do.
If you feel the need to further analyze this college baseball play, where Fordham player Brian Kownacki deceives Iona catcher James Beck by successfully jumping over him to make a home run, this video goes over it repeatedly (and backwards, and in slow-motion.)
To add to the amazing game, the Fordham team had been losing 9 to 1, but they rallied and eventually won the game against Iona, 12 to 9.
