Hilarious Kid ‘Runs’ Bases In Slow Motion During Youth Baseball Game
Fans — aka family and friends — at a recent kids’ baseball game were treated to a rare spectacle. As one player made his way to home plate, his run amounted to basically the most dramatic moment in youth sports history.
The boy made the home stretch count by “running” every step in slow motion. Will the other team get the ball to the catcher’s mitt before he makes it? Will he make the slide in time? It’s almost too intense to watch!
Check this little ham out for yourself below.
Just for the record, it takes the kid nearly 1 full minute to make it from third base to home plate! In all seriousness, the boy’s slow-motion run is absolutely adorable, and that’s probably why it’s going viral online.
Twitter user @TabbyRodriguez posted the video of the epic moment along with the caption, “If any of you need a laugh, the coach told my cousin to run home as fast as he can and he delivered.”
You can tell most of the fans in attendance loved his run by the way they can be heard cracking up in the video.
Folks online can’t get over how intense this baseball moment truly was:
One person tweeted, “This is not only the cutest thing I have ever seen, but it’s also the most stressed I have ever been while watching a video on [Twitter].”

And while he made many people laugh — the parents of the kids on other team probably didn’t think it was quite so funny.
