WATCH: Rockies Brandon Barnes burns the basepaths for an inside-the-park home run

  • David Whitlock

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.  Check out his deep shot against Arizona Diamondbacks reliever Brad Ziegler and the subsequent smoke around the paths (via MLB.com)

 

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!

David Whitlock - manager

David (a.k.a. Longhorndave or lhd_on_sports) joined the staff late in the 2012 season and moved to Site Manager in early 2013. A lifelong Houston Astros fan (and mini-season ticket holder for 9 years) he attends 20+ games per year. A statistics freak, David still keeps score the "old fashioned way" on occasion (and has kept manual score of World Series games since 1986 and retains the sheets). He was a featured guest weekly on the Phil Naessens Show. He is also a Texas Longhorns alumnus and huge football and baseball fan of his alma mater. When he isn't watching or writing about baseball, he works as a contractor at NASA Johnson Space Center. He lives by the mantra "a bad day at the ballpark is better than a good day anywhere else."
