One of the more entertaining highlights in the postseason so far. Has to make you laugh a bit. But totally legitimate. Don't care so much about the O's and not a fan of the Yankees but had it on in the background and happened to catch the play. Good for the O's to take it--big underdogs obviously. Hard to imagine they'd be able to take 2 of 3 in NY but we'll see.
Here's a link to the Ichiro play at home. Click on the "video" tab and then you can select the highlight at right. Totally worthwhile if you missed it.
Why was that totally legitimate? Just curious. If you did that running down the baseline or at any other base you would be called out. He was clearly out of any sort of baseline. So why is it legal at home?
7.08 Any runner is out when—
(a) (1) He runs more than three feet away from his baseline to avoid being tagged unless his action is to avoid interference with a fielder fielding a batted ball.
PS Was that Mark Berry coaching third for the Yankees? That throw beat Ichiro to the plate by a ridiculous margin.
Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!
