Best Sports Play Ever!

I remember watching this during the College Softball Series back in June. In my opinion, this was one of the best plays I have seen. It is not easy to catch the ball, set your feet, and make a good throw to get the lead runner out. I can only …

Best Sports Play of the Past Year (IMO)
