This is why he's the most electrifying young player in sports entertainment! Atlanta Braves superstar Ronald Acuña has gotten fans on their feet with the plentiful highlights he's provided thus far in his young career, but on Sunday Night Baseball he did the unthinkable -- he combined an epic blooper with an amazing play at the plate.

That's a full-on FACEPLANT around third base and he still managed to score! He returned to his feet in a fit of fury before busting his way to home plate to force an erratic throw to the catcher.
Maybe we should have Acuña race The Freeze next, but they switch roles? After all, he gave the Nationals' defense a head start as they were getting the ball in from the outfield.
