Watch this High School Baseball Player’s Crazy Home Plate Steal

It’s hard enough to ever steal home plate in a baseball game. It’s even harder to do it when the person in the batter’s box doesn’t get out of the way. Graham Tews — who recently graduated Ogden High School in Ogden, IA — not only managed to pull off the difficult feat, but he did it in style.

Watch the Iowa high-schooler come flying down the third base line, and launch himself through his teammate’s legs en route to the amazing swipe.

It’s an extremely high-risk manuever, considering the batter is wielding an aluminum bat. But the routine was choreographed, according to Tews.
