The 14th Annual Cooperstown Classic Baseball Tournament
June 24-25, 2017

After a 1 hour rain delay, the finals between the Buffalo Hitmen and Charlotte All-Stars (a.k.a. Athletics) got underway.

Unlike the prior year where Charlotte lost a walkoff, 4-3, this year, they won a 4-3 walkoff in the bottom in 9th inning. With two outs and a man on third base, a ground ball is hit up the middle and fielded. On a bang-bang play at first base, the batter/runner dives into the bag and is called safe as the winning run scores. You gotta see it!
