Probably The Weirdest Strikeout You Will Ever See


The weirdest strikeout you have ever seen happened in a minor league baseball game between the Hartford Yard Goats and the Binghamton Rumble Ponies. With two outs in the top of the eighth inning during Friday’s game, Hartford’s batter Josh Fuentes whiffed at a ball as it was rolling on the infield grass. Fuentes obviously swung as a joke but the umpire didn’t take it as one and rung him up on strikes to end the inning.

Let’s see what Twitter thought of this bizarre strikeout.


Not sure if that is even in the rule book that you can get called for a strike for obviously jokingly swinging at a ball that doesn't ever reach home plate. Unfortunately for Fuentes but luckily for us this minor league umpire takes his job way to serious and we have for ourselves the weirdest strikeout in baseball history. In all my years playing, coaching, and watching baseball I've seen some strange things but nothing quite like this. I guess we should have expected nothing less in a game that featured Yard Goats and Rumble Ponies.
