Bartolo Colon's epic home run gets hilariously mashed up with 'The Natural'

May 11, 2016

Ageless pitching wonder Bartolo Colon defied all reasonable expectations on Saturday against the Padres, slugging his first career home run in 249 at-bats spanning 19 seasons.

The 42-year-old New York Mets righty took his sweet time rounding the bases, which made it even more ripe for this mash-up (by Mark Evans) with the final home run scene from "The Natural" starring Robert Redford.

The final act of Colon's batting career couldn't possibly have come in May, so we'll be on the lookout for one more. Even if it's the 'ol helmet falling off trick.
