You’d think “shortstop gets dropkicked by a descending skydiver” would be the only point of interest in a video about a collegiate summer league shortstop getting kicked in the face and taken out by a goddamn skydiver, but there’s so much to see here, including:
1. A player named MATTINGLY ROMANIN, which is how the Yankees described the end of a late night in the 1980s. Example: “Who’s that at the door? It’s 4 AM!” “Don’t worry, it’s just Mattingly roamin’ in.”
2. A team named the “Hannibal Cavemen,” aka the greatest possible prequel to Silence of the Lambs.
3. A BASEBALL PLAYER GETTING KICKED IN THE FACE BY A SKYDIVER
It’s hard to overstate the “Fabio gets hit in the face by a bird while riding a roller coaster”-ness of the incident, so I’ll let you watch it yourself. Multiple angles on the greatest missile dropkick ever are after the jump.
Thank God he didn’t have a fan attached to his back, somebody might’ve died.
Alternate joke: I don’t remember Magnolia starting like this.
