Worst — or best — bunt attempt ever
Is it possible to make a play that 1) makes your manager the proudest guy on the field and 2) makes you look like the worst baseball player perhaps in the world? Well, take a look at this and be the judge.
The would-be bunter is Kensuke Uchimura of the Yokohama BayStars in Japan. According to baseball-reference.com , Uchimura is batting .222 this season and has all of one home run in more than 1,500 career plate appearances. So clearly, small ball is his game. Even so, being this committed to advancing the runner — not even a pitch-out is going to keep him from trying to lay down a sacrifice — is quite commendable.
