Fordham’s Brian Kownacki shows why the best baseball is not always found in major league parks.
This incredible leap secured the win against Iona. The opposing coach is obviously not happy, but there are some acts that you have to just accept it is the will of God or at least fate.

I saw the Yankees play last week. The guys seemed positively unwilling to give their all physically.
Now, I don’t mean they have to leap over catchers, but they even seemed reluctant to slide or dive for a ball.
I cannot wait until my darling spouse comes home and sees this video. One of the highlights of our week is sharing Jonathan Turley video selections.
I post Buckner’s error because for every good play, as above, there are innumerable errors…
As a Mighty-Mite little leaguer who got tagged out between 3rd Base and Home Plate—thereby *losing* the final championship game for my team on that game ending crucial play—I applaud that kid for his exceptional efforts. I too was waved-in by the 3rd Base coach, but for some reason I hesitated and my comparative acrobatic agilities were far inferior—okay, nonexistent—to the video’s athlete.
There are just some aspects of life that a kid can never forget or live down, even after 5 subsequent decades of trials, tribulations, and success as an adult. Mine was an infamous “Buckner” moment over a quarter-century *before* Bill’s fielding error in the World Series, while the kid in the video will have baseball base runnin’ braggin’ rights henceforth.
(Insert standing ovation here.)
That is Powerful. What would Joe do?
