    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.
    You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

    LOL this video made me happy.

    I haven't been a huge fan of Gomez since he traded in his potential as a leadoff hitter and turned into a self proclaimed masher Willie Mays Hayes style.

    Ha he is like Willie Mays Hayes mixed in with a little bit of Pedro Cerrano. I wonder if he has that little statue in his locker as well.....

    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.

    He runs faster than the Speed of Sound. The Ump yelled foul. He just out ran the sound of it.
