Japanese Player Bunt Fail

Uchimura Dives Across The Plate To Try And Bunt

Uchimura Dives Across The Plate To Try And Bunt

What happens in the GIF below has to be one of the greatest things I have ever seen. In the Japan Pacific League, Kensuke Uchimura was given a suicide squeeze sign with a man a second and third. The pitcher, recognizing the situation, was throwing a pitch out to try to get the runner on third a little off the base so the catcher could get him out. On a suicide squeeze, if you are the batter, you have to, HAVE to make contact with the ball or else the runner at third running home has no shot at scoring. With that said, Uchimura knows he has to try to make contact with the bunt attempt. However, the ball is a good two or three feet away from the plate, and Uchimura dives across the plate to try to bunt the ball. He completely misses. The attempt called for a funny GIF.
