Hello. You might remember Buster Posey’s grand slam off Mat Latos from videos like this:
Or from GIFs like this:
Or from Photoshopped images that I just made like this:
But I am pleased to announce that I have found a new video of the event. It has over 20,000 views, so it might not be new to you, but it was new to me. It is a delightful video, and it gives me an excuse to share everything I’ve just shared:
This is pure. The camera is steady, and it’s even in landscape mode. I don’t know if they were recording the whole thing, or if they just got lucky with the timing. These are fans in a bar, watching their favorite baseball team crush a hated arch-villain, and I encourage you to watch it.
It is an extremely good baseball video. There is no other reason why I’m posting this right now, at the beginning of March, five seasons later.
Then again, there doesn’t need to be a reason.
