Three walkoff home runs in only nine games yesterday! What are the odds of that? Even better, how does one choose which walkoff to award Home Run of the Day? Decisions, decisions.

Quiet. A master is at work. Home Run of the Day: Yasiel Puig, Los Angeles Dodgers – 19.11* seconds [video] Bottom of the 11th inning in a scoreless game. With one swing of the bat, Yasiel Puig grows his legend even more. As the ball sails over the fence, Puig flips his bat in triumph […]
