‘Tis the season for jaw dropping baseball highlights, and today’s best comes from the state of Maryland.
Gilman School outfielder Joseph Melancon was caught playing a McDonogh School batter shallow. That’s when the hitter got behind the ball, driving it to deep center before Melancon took matters into his own hands, extending with a Superman attempt that snagged the drive for a very noisy out.
The out was a big play in a 6-3 victory for Gilman which helped propel Gilman further toward the playoffs.
Yet, even if Gilman had fallen short, no one would have forgotten Melancon’s athleticism anytime soon.
