Although a majority of the plays we share and discuss here at Baseball is Fun tend to be absurd in their uniqueness – like losing while throwing a no-hitter, or watching an outfielder get called off a pop fly by a someone in the stands – some things just never get old.
Like the Little League (a.k.a. inside-the-park) home run.
Last night, Cesar Herndez and the Phillies had one of their own against the Diamondbacks, but it did come with a little twist: starting with a bunt.
Check it out:
A Little League home run for Cesar!

What’s there to say? They messed up … about as badly as one team can on a bunt.
In case you’re interested in the stats of that blazing fast trip around the bases, StatCast recorded a sprint speed of 30.8 feet/sec and a home-to-home time of 19.01 seconds.
Catch the ball next time, dudes.
