High school center fielder uses header to start the craziest (only?) 8-7-6 double play you'll ever see
HS center fielder uses header for 8-7-6 double play
We'll spare you the "heads up" puns and just get right down to business with this one. D'Iberville High School in Biloxi, Miss., turned one of the craziest double plays you'll ever see.
The Warriors were playing Hancock High School. With a Hancock runner on second and one out in the inning, Warriors center fielder Travis Bender charged hard and laid out to catch a line drive. He missed and the ball bounced off his head ... into left field ... where it was caught by Jay Deshong, who doubled the runner off at second to end the inning by throwing to shortstop Luther Woullard.
Seriously, that's an 8-7-6 double play in your scorebooks, folks. Also, +1 for the spectator commentary.
