WATCH: Rockies Brandon Barnes burns the basepaths for an inside-the-park home run
Arguably the most exciting play in baseball, an inside-the-park home run requires a well struck ball, usually a crazy bounce, and a really really fast runner. Colorado Rockies OF Brandon Barnes made it look easy by running full speed out of the box and never letting up.

Barnes also accomplished the rare feat of a cycle last year when playing for the Houston Astros. He’s also been known for his glove prowess. While not a household name, Barnes certainly is a player you want to watch when he comes to the plate!
