High school player hurdles catcher for amazing run in playoff game (Video)

Sean Nicholson hurdleCalifornia high school baseball player Sean Nicholson scored an incredible run during a CIF playoff game earlier this week when he hurdled the catcher before tagging home plate on his landing.

Nicholson’s Franklin (Elk Grove, Calif.) High School had the bases loaded against top seed Davis on Monday and got a single to right. Nicholson was on second and tried scoring on the hit. The throw home beat him, so Nicholson improvised and went Willie Mays Hayes. “I told you I wasn’t going to slide!”

Franklin won the game 12-3.

Franklin High also shared this awesome photo of the hurdle:

So, how does Nicholson’s hurdle compare to Tony Campana’s awesome dive? And what about this amazing slide? It’s definitely up there. He deserves a lot of credit for his quick reaction.
