Jose Bautista Throws Out Potential Winning Run

Colombia Dominican Republic World Baseball ClassicHere’s the play that caused madness at about 4:10 pm EST in Miami. Colombia and Dominican Republic were tied up at 3 in the bottom of the 9th. Jose Bautista threw out a runner attempting to tag from third and score the winning run for Colombia. Bautista not known for his cannon (this ball came in at 88mph), but got the job done this time.

An incredible play at the plate either way, but after watching the replay, the runner was definitely out. I don’t think you can convince any of the Colombians he was out though. For lack of research in looking up the names of everyone involved, we’ll just say that about 5 Colombian players immediately sprinted toward the home plate umpire, looking like they’re ready to rip his head off.
