GIF - Gerald Laird Falls After Sacrifice Bunt

New, 3 comments

The Tigers currently lead the Chicago White Sox 5-4 as the teams head to the bottom of the 6th inning, but that's not the big story of tonight's game. No, not even the combined 7 hits and 3 RBI from Miguel Cabrera, Prince Fielder, and Delmon Young can top this one.

Gerald Laird, beloved backup catcher and owner of a 2-inch vertical leap, took a spill after laying down a sacrifice bunt in the 5th inning. Visual evidence is after the jump.

Click the .gif for a closer look if it's not cycling on its own. SB Nation is finnicky with these sometimes.

And since Laird's pirouette at the end was so nice, we GIF'd it twice.
