You never know what you’ll see in baseball.
Whenever you think you’ve seen everything you’ll ever see baseball finds a way to surprise you.
The strangest plays often come from the most unlikely places, and the most recent whimsical play is no exception.
Journeyman outfielder Raimel Tapia came out on top with two strikeouts in the top of the 3rd inning of Friday’s Blue Jays-Red Sox game at Fenway Park.
The Jays were already leading 6-0, but with the bases loaded, they had an even bigger opportunity.
Tapia lifted the pop fly to midfield and dejectedly tossed the bat away, suggesting an easy exit.
Instead of, Red Sox center fielder Jarren Duran immediately lost sight of the ball and chaos ensued:
Tapia raced down the bases and parried the shot easily, leading to an incredibly rare grand slam in the park.
The Toronto Blue Jays set the franchise record for most runs in a game by outscoring the Red Sox 28–5.
