That's it, folks.... we've officially seen it all. In a Triple-A game between the Charlotte Knights and Durham Bulls, Charlotte's Eloy Jimenez stepped up to the plate. Already having a night to remember, the top White Sox prospect was looking to keep breaking Durham hearts. Well, the Bulls decided they were tired of seeing the 21-year-old outfielder light up the field.

Durham actually used FOUR outfielders to try and stop Jimenez. The funny part is it actually worked. In the infield, they had a third baseman, shortstop and first baseman, but no one at second. Hilarious.
It worked this time. Hey, maybe in the postseason, a team in the bigs might try this against the Yankees and Giancarlo Stanton. I wouldn't recommend it, though.
