Ground Ball Takes Crazy Curve From Fair To Foul [VIDEO]
Minnesota Twins shortstop Brian Dozier hit a ground ball on Saturday that took one of the craziest curves you will ever see.
This is why you always hustle, kids. Wow, listen to me. Another sign of my old age (I’m 34 now) is that I’m addressing younger people as “kids.” Anyway, Brian Dozier hustled down to first base after hitting a ball against the Kansas City Royals on Saturday.
The ball initially hit the ground far in foul territory, but it took a crazy curve and ended up in fair territory. Dozier was safe at first base because he hustled down the line. Dozier’s teammate Ryan Doumit was also able to score from second base on the play because no one was covering home. The Twins went on to beat the Royals 7-2.
Dozier had a funny perspective about the whole thing. “That’s what I was trying to do,” Dozier said while laughing. “No, it’s just one of those things. I think that’s the first time I’ve actually seen it come back. A lot of time you’ll see it spin and spin, everybody’s waiting on it. But yeah, I saw it on film, it actually hit behind the batter’s box.” This is why you always have to hustle, kids.
