Watch: Aledmys Diaz puts serious spin on this would-be foul ball – reaches first base

In baseball, you never know what’s going to happen. Even though the game has been played for more than 150 years, you could still see something unique every single night.

On Friday night in Baltimore, fans were treated to something you don’t see very often, though it came as the hometown Orioles were crushed by the visiting St. Louis Cardinals 11-2.

In the top of the seventh inning, Cardinals shortstop Aledmys Diaz stepped to the plate and appeared to foul off a curveball from Baltimore reliever Gabriel Ynoa.

Despite the ball leaving Diaz’s bat and going well into foul territory, Diaz put so much spin on it that it immediately started rolling toward fair territory, as you can see in the video below:
