Countless events scheduled for the spring and summer of 2020 have been postponed or wiped out completely due to COVID-19 concerns. Last week, Little League followed suit in regards to its annual World Series tournaments. It’s a devastating blow to so many talented children, hindering baseball’s international growth.
As an homage to them, I have compiled some examples of Marlins hitters joyously circling the bases on “Little League home runs.” For our purposes, let’s use a broad definition—going home to home on a ball that never left the field of play, aided by one or more defensive miscues.
These are the crazy plays featured in the video, listed in order of appearance:
- JT Riddle vs. Padres (May 29, 2018)
- J.T. Realmuto vs. Rays (July 20, 2018)
- Derek Dietrich vs. Brewers (May 9, 2016)
- Christian Yelich vs. Padres (August 27, 2017)
- Dee Gordon vs. Padres (April 22, 2017)
