Byron Buxton Inside the Park Home Run

Check this out.  Even with not totally hitting 3rd base at the best stride, he makes incredibly short work of the trip around the bases:

Was fortunate to see this live Friday night.  When the ball hit off the wall, you knew something special was going to happen, and when he rounded second at the speed he did, you knew home plate was in play.

There may have been faster men in MLB, but if there are/were, I couldn't name you one.

Hats off to Buxton.  He struggled mightily until this year, and the kid is finally starting to live up to his billing as a total 5 tool player.  If his development continues, he'll be fun to watch for years.
