This Robbing Of A Wiffle Ball Home Run Is More Impressive Than Any MLB Robbery I’ve Ever Seen

by 4 years ago

Wiffle Ball has come a long way since I was in high school playing heated games between my backyard and my best friend’s yard. They have real ballparks for Christ’s sake! All we had was a folding chair for a strike zone, an overly taped ball and bat, neighbor’s roofs signifying if a home run was hit and our two makeshift fields that were named The Pussy Plaza and The Snatch Patch.

We were horny teens, sure, but I stand by those “stadium” names.

What I don’t standby, however, is our use of other people’s homes. Admittedly, that was pretty shitty of us. If some kids were hitting heavily taped wiffle balls at my house a few times a week, I’d lose all the shit in my body. Maybe take their father outside and treat him like Ray Velcoro. Then look his kid right in the eye and spit straight Velcoro-esque fire, “If you ever hit a wiffle ball on my roof again, I’ll come back and butt fuck your father with your mom’s headless corpse on this goddamn lawn.” (Easily the funniest moment in the second season of True Detective. I laughed for minutes.)

But times have changed. People have full-blown fields to play wiffle ball on these days. No one’s father needs to have his asshole plundered with a headless corpse. And that’s pretty cool.

I guess that’s not entirely true, kids are still stuck in back yards, but if you play professional wiffle ball, you can play in a stadium like the one in this video where a guy was robbed of a home run in the Wiffle Ball World Series (I guess such a thing exists???) if the most heartbreaking way possible.

Per the YouTube Description:

The #1 Yankees take on the #2 A’s in the 2015 Hess Field Wiffle Ball World Series.

In Game 2 of a best of 5 series, the Yankees lead 3-0 in the 3rd inning with 2 runners on and 2 outs and then this happened…

Magnificent play.
