Micahel Morse’s Grand Slam Re-enactment – What A Joke [VIDEO]

ST. LOUIS, MO - SEPTEMBER 29: Michael Morse #38 of the Washington Nationals hits a grand slam against the St. Louis Cardinals at Busch Stadium on September 29, 2012 in St. Louis, Missouri. After a review by the umpires Morse's hit was ruled a grand slam. (Photo by Dilip Vishwanat/Getty Images)

Bud Selig and Major League Baseball appear to be going down the same road of professional wrestling or Tru-TV.

I’m not saying the overall sport is staged or re-enacted, but Michael Morse’s grand slam last week against the St. Louis Cardinals, for some reason, needed to be literally re-enacted in order for it to count.

The video below details exactly what happened but here is the gist of it: Morse hits a grand slam. The ball skips off the back-wall and back onto the field and is ruled ‘in play’. Upon further review the umpires get it right and rule it’s a grand slam. Okay, but why is Morse required to round the bases backwards, then take mock swing in the batters box, with an imaginary bat, theoretically hitting an invisible pitch over the wall?!?!

And, the best part – or the worst part -is this that you can here the broadcasters saying things like ‘I’ve never seen anything like this before’, then make a mock home run call for the phantom blast to right field.

This has to be one of the silliest, most ridiculous things I’ve ever seen in baseball and another example of why MLB is continues to fade from America’s pastime to some combination of America’s laugh-time or America’s nap-time.
