2016 Victoria Mariners Baseball Club
June 2, 2016, Victoria, BC - Victoria Mariners pitcher Liam Kruse goes horizontal and uses a little extra tongue action to make a throw to first base after fielding a short ground ball in a BC Premier League baseball game against the Victoria Eagles at Royal Athletic Park in Victoria. The Mariners would come away with a 3-0 win.
WHY I CHOSE THIS PHOTO: Catching athletes in strange or unusual positions always makes for an interesting photo and this certainly meets that bill. It was also a fine play (he made the out) and involved a great effort and the facial expression also adds a bit of humour to the shot.
