Mason Katz Involved in a wild finish to a crazy baseball game
LINK

Hit the link for the entire recap, but the gist of it is:

quote:

Well, let's start with how they won: It's the bottom of the 14th inning and the Kansas City T-Bones are completely out of pitchers, having already used their entire bullpen and then their centrefielder to get through a pair of innings. So they bring in starting pitcher Matt Sergey, who is coming off a 105-pitch performance in Fargo 48 hours earlier. As a result, the righty ends up using his left arm to throw — and promptly walks the first two Goldeyes batters he faces.

After a sacrifice bunt moves them over to second and third, Sergey is asked to intentionally walk Goldeyes hitter Mason Katz to set up a bases-loaded, one-out force play situation. But instead of just making a routine wide toss to his catcher, Sergey — we remind you, he's using his wrong arm to throw — sails one to the backstop.

Shawn Pleffner trots home with the game-winning run on a wild pitch intentional walk, and what's left of the 4,413 fans who were at the game when it started five hours earlier are sent into a frenzy. The Goldeyes had just won their sixth straight game in the most dramatic of fashion, pushing them ahead of Kansas City and into the wildcard playoff spot.

Impressed that he could throw a strike left handed.

So Mason Katz just chilled in the batters box and watched all this play out and did nothing to effect the wild finish?

He hit a 2run single in the 9th but yes, in this situation he was simply at bat.

What I don't understand is that if you are going to intentionally walk someone why not do it with the arm you regularly pitch with? If you lob 4 in you are not going to put any stress on the arm.

Not as wild as a guy on first scoring on a two out dropped strike 3 that is overthrown to first, but interesting.

Or the SEC home run leader being called on to pitch in the SEC tournament? You know what they say... come to the park because you might see something you've never seen before.

Why didn't they just throw another position player? That makes no sense.
