The rare inside-the-park grand slam unicorn was spotted in Florida. It happened during an early season game between Stetson and Southern Illinois.
In the top of the second, with Southern Illinois already leading 4-0, and the bags packed, a batter laced a shot toward the left field fence. Stetson outfielder Austin Bogart tracked the ball, but ran out of real estate and crashed through a gate in the fence.
Bogart’s was hobbled from the collision and couldn’t get to his feet to throw the ball to the cutoff man. The result is a rare inside-the-park grand slam.
Here’s the video. Turn down the volume, the broadcast sounds like there is an EMP going off in the background. It’s small-time college baseball, folks.
How do you hit an inside-the-park grand slam? Stetson LF Austin Bogart literally runs through the wall. (He’s OK). pic.twitter.com/t43zYOjLZB
