Sports News Without Fear, Favor or Compromise

The website that tracks the slowest HR trots may have found a new record that might never be broken. It is definitely much harder to finish your stroll around the bases when you're being attacked by the other team.

Advertisement dug up this raw footage of a Memorial Day game between the Bakersfield Blaze and the Visalia Rawhide, which was won on a walk-off tater from Blaze/Ranger prospect Engel Beltre. Beltre enjoyed himself a little too much on the march down to first base and by the time he reached third, some of the Rawhide players were waiting to politely voice their objections. A couple of Beltre's teammates rebutted with their fists and cooler heads did not prevail. As you can see, Beltre doesn't even touch the plate until after the dust up is over—and not without flipping the ol' flying bird as final flourish. A grand day for sportsmanship.


One minute and seven seconds to round four bases and (I'm assuming) a couple of suspensions along way. Not too shabby.
