I think last night’s swipe of home plate by the Red Sox’ Jacoby Ellsbury against the Yankees’ Andy Pettitte gave me more chills than the Bloody Sock game:
How fast must Ellsbury have been moving since he stumbled as he slid and his momentum still carried him to the plate in time?
Update 9:50 a.m. 4/28/09: I should have known better than to embed a YouTube version of the play, considering that MLB was certain to demand it be taken down. The play can be viewed at MLB’s site — at least for a little while longer.
