Receiving fake dugout CPR from a teammate after an inside-the-park homer makes for a hilarious visual
Pulling off a successful inside-the-park home run requires a lot of running. I mean, a lot -- more sustained sprinting than I've done in my life, realistically. It'll tire out even the most in-shape athletes, because it's not easy.
Once safely back in the dugout, Springer received some attention. Not from the medical staff -- he was fine -- but from shortstop
Now, an inside-the-park homer is inherently different from a "regular" over-the-fence homer, sure, but they're both still types of homers. Allowing that, I hereby enter Correa and Springer's fake CPR into the running list of the best home run celebrations we've seen thus far this season, alongside gems like the Reds' trust-fall:
And the staredown, which has become a thing of its own lately as well.
Those are great, but fake CPR from a teammate? That's the new high-water mark, as far as I'm concerned.
