Going Viral…160,000 Hits and Counting

During the off season, I work as the sports information director and associate athletic director at the College of Idaho – 30 minutes west of Memorial Stadium.

On Saturday, I was working one of our baseball games – and happened to pick up a hand-held digital camera when our shortstop came up with the bases loaded in the 11th inning of a tie game.  This is what I captured.

A walk-off grand slam homer…but watch the video again…notice the bat flip, which social media jumped all over.

Starting with the Bleacher Report, then CBS Sports.com, and even the MLB Fan Cave.

In all, over 160,000 views of the video has occurred since Saturday night.  Hopefully just a start to a great summer of baseball in Boise!!!
