The home run robbery is one of the most exciting plays in baseball, and we never get one where a player is running full speed toward the fence and flies over it to catch the ball. That's what happened in the University of Evansville and Indiana University game.

Evansville outfielder Josh Jyawook decided that a normal home run robbery wouldn't be as fun, so he decided to fly over the fence. Meanwhile, Indiana's Craig Dedelow is calmly jogging around the bases thinking he had an opposite field home run, but no. Jyawook is there to fly away with your dreams.

That home run robbery became more important as the game continued because Evansville won the game 2-1 in 14 innings.
