Nick Hundley Takes A Spill Into The Photo Well (Update w/ Video)
His sacrifice may not have been as great as the one made by soccer player Julian Velazquez. However, when you consider the fact that Nick Hundley is playing for a San Diego Padres team that is 20 games under .500 and only one loss away from being mathematically eliminated from the playoffs in just the first week of September, falling into the photo well in an attempt to catch a foul ball deserves the same recognition as sliding crotch first into a goal post to save a goal.
Unlike Velazquez, Hundley’s sacrificial attempt was an unsuccessful one, but at least he’ll still be able to have kids.
We now have the video! Here it is.
