Wil Myers Hit an Inside-the-Park Home Run

Kyle Koster

Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Wil Myers blasted a drive to deep center and casually trotted down the first-base line. When the ball failed to leave the yard and caromed off a leaping Jacoby Ellsbury, he turned on the afterburners to sprint around the bases for a stand-up inside-the-park home run.

He was able to do this because he wasn’t weighed down by either an extraneous L in his first name or batting gloves. Carlos Beltran’s complete disinterest in participating in the play from right field didn’t hurt either.
