I'm not a HUGE baseball fan, but stuff like this makes me wish I would have grown up in an era when baseball was everything and the sport wasn't mired down in controversy.

I have to say that as boring as baseball can be, it also has the potential to be the most exciting sport there is IMO. I remember when the Diamondbacks made their run to win the world series- I don't think I have ever been that involved in a story line and that far on the edge of my seat for every single game. From the end of the season all the way until Gonzo sealed the deal.

Anyways- for memory's sake of a great moment I wanted to post this story. Watch the video and try not to get caught up in the moment!
