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.
