VIDEO: Jon Singleton hits an inside the park home run
Astros first baseman Jon Singleton isn't exactly fast, but he still hit an inside the park homer Saturday. Here's the footage.
Astros first baseman Jon Singleton isn't about to be confused for his teammate Jose Altuve any time soon. For one, Singleton is 6-foot-2, 255 pounds. For another, he's one for three in the stolen base category this season. Yeah, he's not fleet afoot.
Still, Singleton was able to pull off an inside-the-park home run Saturday night -- with a hat-tip to Anthony Gose of the Blue Jays in center field. The video evidence:
Yes, the initial call on the field was out, but Astros manager Bo Porter challenged the call and won. And Singleton has his first career inside-the-park homer. It was his 10th homer of the season.
