The throw to home plate from the outfield was right on target and it appeared Farnham would be able to get the tag down in time. Beckham slipped it by executing a backdoor slide, only his hand came nowhere close to touching the plate. He then sprung up, danced around Beckham and dove at the plate. Farnham probably didn’t even have enough time to process what had happened, and who can blame him?
Beckham’s run may not have been quite as impressive as this amazing game-winning slide or that hurdle we showed you from a high school game last week, but you will probably never see anything like it again. Durham went on to win 8-4.
