March 15, 2017. Netherlands were facing off against Cuba in the World Baseball Classic in Tokyo when Yurendell de Caster hit a homer for the Dutch. The big play happened when the ball landed in the stands. A fan attempted to catch the ball, but it was not to be:
On Saturday, Japan faced off against the Netherlands in baseball, and in the seventh inning, with his team trailing 2 – 8, Shohei Otani comes to the plate, having already provided a homer in the 5th inning. On this at bat, he absolutely crushes a ball, but before we could find out how long of a homer it was, it disappeared into a small gap in the roof!
It was ruled a ground rule double, and Japan would complete the comeback to win 9 – 8 in the 10th inning.
