I was looking for something interesting for my 1000th post and darned if it didn't happen at my last baseball game. To set the stage, one out runners on first and second. The batter slices a line drive into the right field corner. Both runners see the ball and take off. The runner on second is going to score easily but you can see the runner on first has made his mind up to score also. He is the fastest on the team and he is catching up to the lead runner. Meanwhile the right fielder finally recovers the ball and fires to his cutoff man who then relays to home. Pretty standard stuff up to this point.

Now enters the fourth person in this little story, the pitcher! He decides he needs to help out. Instead of taking his back up position behind the catcher, he was standing admiring his handy work. All of a sudden he heads to home plate! So now we have the catcher waiting for the ball, the first runner about to slide in and the second runner about 10 feet behind under a full head of steam and here comes the pitcher into this little scene. The first runner slides, the ball bounces in and the catcher reaches for it and so does the pitcher! The catcher is knocked to his butt, by the pitcher, the ball goes to the backstop, the second runner slides into this accident scene and the pitcher runs to retrieve the ball! At this point all I can think of is the movie "Major League" and did this really happen:eek:
