Caleb Walker of Tupelo High School in Mississippi was forced to improvise for his play at the plate in last week’s game against South Panola. The result happened to be what Walker called “one of the greatest moments” of his life.
In the bottom of the sixth inning, teammate J.D. Roberts hit a single and Walker rounded third base. He tried to slide across home plate, but catcher Brian Kownacki was in the way.
Walker suddenly jumped up and over the diving catcher, touched home plate and was called safe.
