I have never seen this.  I think an intentional walk should just be automatic, but this is hi-farking-larous.

It happens occasionally. It's always a shock.  To the catcher most of all.

I find it amusing that he's booking it after a walk-off home run

I've seen the catcher drop the ball and a run scores, and I'm sure somebody has reached out and blooped a single, but I've never seen anybody homer like that.

Didn't something like this happen in a movie?  The batter stepped into ball 4 and swatted it anyway?  I forget which one, but I could swear I saw it in a movie.

That dude didn't even have to step. It was like he was in slow pitch softball.

Not a sports person here. Can someone explain why this video is significant? From my standpoint it just looks like they're playing normally. Was he not supposed to hit the ball or something?

The pitcher was supposed to throw it so badly that he couldn't hit it if he wanted to. The pitcher failed at failing.

It's happened somewhere before; I didn't think it could happen again after that....

Catcher probably could have been a little more emphatic in signaling it one way or another.

Miguel Cabrera turned an intentional walk into a hit, but I've never seen the homerun.

The pitcher always looks at the catcher for a sign before throwing the pitch.  How the heck could he not see him standing up?

Agreed. That is pretty unusual.

Ah, thank you. So basically it's like when I play baseball then.

The catcher should have had brighter lights on his flashing uniform.

Also midway through Mr. Baseball. The  ump says he stepped out of the box though so you don't know if it counts in the end.

I can appreciate the resulting celebrations

I don't claim to know 'the biz,' but it felt like, to me anyway, that they wanted the batter to think it would be an intentional walk and then tried to sneak it across the plate.
Having the catcher lean over enough to make the batter think, 'what's the point?' but staying close enough to throw the glove back in place for a strike.  Throw it all weak like so the catcher could get back on the ball.  But the batter wasn't fooled.

/Doesn't watch baseball
//my opinion, it doesn't have to be yours.

When i was a kid, I read a book featuring a few of the old timey greats. This guy did it a few times in real life apparently, though it isn't mentioned in the wiki.

Nap was also intentionally walked with the bases loaded.

Auburn was hoping to catch it at the warning track and run it back for a touchdown.
