Have You Ever Seen a Walkoff Bunt-Groundout Where the Runner Scores from First Base?

Baseball Is Fun

The Dominican Winter League (LIDOM) is one of the best and most exciting ways to satisfy your baseball craving when the MLB season ends in October: Six teams, a 50-game regular season, an 18-game, four-team playoff round-robin, and a best-of-nine championship series running through January. It routinely features top prospects from MLB and there is absolutely no unwritten rules. The higher the bat flip, the louder the yell, the saltier the taunt, the better. That’s my brand of baseball.

Anyway, last night, the LIDOM’s Los Toros Del Estate walked off their game in the most bizarre fashion: a sacrifice bunt, which was meant only to move the lead runner to second base, ended up being the game-winning play because the guy … just kept running.

That’s just classic all-out Dominican Baseball (except the slide could use some work … yeesh). That’s one way to win a game I don’t think I’ve ever seen before.
