Sure, Andy Murray was emotional, but was he as excited as Cameron Oliu? Watch the highlight below and judge for yourself.
The video you see above comes from a Little League All-Star game in Florida, where the Bradenton North and South leagues pitted their best against each other. As noted by USA Today, Bradenton North was trailing by a run with two men on base when Cameron Oliu came to the plate with the chance to win the game with a single swing in the bottom of the seventh inning.
What came next was dramatic for multiple reasons. Most significantly:
From one Cameron to another, what are you doing swinging at a pitch that was nearly at eye level, Cameron Oliu! Who do you think you are, Vladamir Guerrero?
Thank goodness you swung at that high pitch Cameron Oliu!
Was that a belly flop into home? A face first slide? Oliu’s best seal impression?
Whatever that move was as Oliu crossed home, it symbolized both the end of a heck of a Little League all-star faceoff and the celebration of the weekend, at least according to Prep Rally’s tally.
Given a solid weekend of Major League walkoffs and a truly historic Wimbledon final, that’s an accomplishment almost equal to the win that Oliu’s bomb scored itself.
