Dude just wanted to stretch his legs. Nothing wrong with that.
If I hit a ball that far, I would run around the bases too, fair or foul. Then again, I'm not a pro ball player.
In fairness, I wonder why this hasn't happened more often. It was extremely close and he (correctly) got out of the box quickly so he didn't hear the home plate ump call it foul and it didn't seem like the other umps (or Phillies) told him as he rounded the bases.
My wife is a Phils fan, so we heard the Phillies announcers laughing about this during the game. We both cracked up. It's just such a GoGo moment.
The best was when Shane Victorino did the same thing and no one told him because, well, nobody likes Shane Victorino other than Shane Victorino.
to top it off he struck out on the very next pitch. classic.
This made me giggle and LOL
Classic. I wish Telly would have interviewed him after that.
