Chris Coghlan goes airborne to avoid tag, scores run (Video)
Chris Coghlan went full Willie Mays Hayes to score a run for the Toronto Blue Jays on Tuesday night.
Coghlan walked with one out in the 7th inning of Toronto’s clash with the Cardinals. Kevin Pillar drove a ball to deep right off the wall, which had Coghlan motoring around the bases.
By the time he got towards home, Yadier Molina was waiting as the throw from right was up the line. Coghlan was thinking quickly and decided to dive over the catcher to avoid the tag. It was glorious:
