One of the first things they teach you in little league is that speed creates mistakes.
Whether it’s an error because you tried to make a play too quickly, or an error by the opponent who does the same trying to throw out a speedy player—it is one of the first things they teach you in baseball.
And while it looks like this little leaguer certainly took that advice to heart—it’s actually the complete opposite.
This Little Leaguer went viral for walking to home plate as slowly as humanly possible over the weekend after he was told by his coach to run home as fast as possible, so he did the opposite.
Which is why what you are about to see will make you giggle with glee or lose your mind as, not only does this little S.O.B robotically strut all the way home—we're assuming this was on a walk with the bases loaded—but he brushes off his coach who tries to move him along, and then he falls onto the plate for emphasis. What a showman.
When all is said and done, it took him sixty-six seconds to go the 60-feet between third and home.
Wow—he’s in the same class as Babe Ruth.
