Bunt and run. That’s a Little League homer! https://t.co/hXoRaAbEbF2017-9-23 22:30:00
Strange things can happen on the baseball field in September, when rosters are populated by late-season call-ups.
On Saturday afternoon, Minnesota Twins second baseman Brian Dozier led off the game with a bunt attempt against the Detroit Tigers. But things got weird when 23-year-old third baseman Jeimer Candelario bounced his throw past Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera.
As the ball rolled down the line in foul territory, Dozier turned on the jets and circled the bases for a Little League-style home run.
Officially it was a ruled a bunt single with a throwing error on Candelario.
