If you’re like me, you’ve spent countless years watching players round third toward a catcher blocking home plate wondering, “why doesn’t he just try to jump right over him?” Well, Chris Coghlan of the Blue Jays finally made it a reality. Dude went full Superman on the catcher, catapulting over him and instantly putting everyone who’s tried the old “I’ll just run into him and hope he drops the ball” maneuver to shame.
Look at that clearance! He makes it look so slick and smooth, it’s enough to make us wonder why it’s taken so long for this to happen. And why the hell didn’t Mark Bellhorn do it first?
