Pittsburgh Pirates Ke’Bryan Hayes Makes Huge BLUNDER!
How could Ke’Bryan Hayes forget to touch 1st base on a home run? It all went down in the bottom of the 1st inning of the Pirates’ game against the Dodgers … when Hayes cracked a shot to the opposite field.
CelebnSports247.com reports that Ke’Bryan Hayes looked more like a Little Leaguer Tuesday when he made a mistake that REALLY cost his team.
Pittsburgh Pirates‘ third baseman Ke’Bryan Hayes hit an awesome home run but there was just one problem — he never tapped 1st on his way around the diamond!
The Dodgers noticed Hayes’ critical error, challenged the play … and sure enough, Hayes was ruled OUT for the mistake.
Of course, the play was HUGE … the first 4 innings ended up being played to a 0-0 tie, with the Dodgers only ultimately winning 5-3.
After the game, Hayes’ manager said his 24-year-old third baseman needed to be better.
Pittsburgh manager Derek Shelton said, before adding:
Obviously, Ke’ got caught watching the ball. If he even thinks he misses [the bag], he has to go back and touch it.
Don’t worry, Pittsburgh should find it easy to forgive Hayes … he’s batting .333 so far this year, and he’s got future star written all over him.
Wait until you see this blunder…it’s one of those “damn did I really do that moment?”
Something you don’t see every day!
