Here’s something you don’t see every day. An inside-the-park home run is rare in itself. An inside-the-park-home run that’s made possible after an outfielder crashes through the bullpen door is something I’ve never seen. When Detroit Tigers center fielder Ryan Raburn jumped to try to come down with a Jhonny Peralta fly ball on Sunday afternoon, that’s exactly what happened. Check out the Jhonny Peralta inside-the-park home run video:
According to Tater Tot Tracker, it took Peralta 16.74 seconds to round the bases. You might ask yourself why I’m pointing that out. That time is slower than five traditional home run trots last season, when we can assume the hitters were jogging. In other words, Peralta can thank the bullpen door for his achievement. Even Nyjer Morgan throwing a fit probably wouldn’t give Jhonny enough time to touch em all.
P.S. – How about the woman squawking in the background of the video? What’s up with that?Google+
