Everyone remembers the scene in "Who's The Boss" when Tony is playing for his Softball team and tries to leap over the catcher at home plate, right? Well Tony Danza was actually tagged out on the play, and while many others have succeed in the "catcher leap", I don't think I've ever seen this move before.
We shall call it the "Oops, I missed home plate, but la la la....GOT YOU!" move....
That was Durham Bulls Center Fielder Fernando Perez and that's about the slickest move I've ever seen. It's like the anti-Pierzynski. I know it has nothing to do with announcing, but I hadn't seen it anywhere else, and I thought you'd enjoy it.
