High schooler stole home by sliding through his teammate's legs at the plate

It must be pretty bittersweet that the Ogden Bulldogs only scored one run in their 6-1 loss to Collins-Maxwell-Baxter in Iowa's Class 2A substate finals on July 20. That tends to happen when the opposing pitcher strikes out 18 batters in seven innings. But if you're only going to score one run, this is one heck of a way to do it:

According to the Newton Daily News, the run came after a walk and sacrifice bunt, when Ogden's Graham Tews "stole third and home to put Ogden ... on the board." That, however, seems to undersell the fact that Tews stole home by sliding through his teammate's legs.

In fact, we offer another description of the play: 

"After a walk and sacrifice bunt, Tews stole third and then, OH MY GOODNESS WHAT DID I JUST WATCH?????"

Yeah, that sums it up.
