Another View of Delmon Young’s ALDS Double

Like all of you, I will never tire of watching replays of Delmon Young’s bases-loaded, bases-clearing double that gave the O’s the lead in the 8th inning of Game 2 of the 2014 ALDS against the Detroit Tigers.

CRUZ IS IN! PEARCE IS IN! HARDY AROUND THIRD HE’S GONNA TRY TO SCORE! AND….SAFE! THE ORIOLES HAVE THE LEAD!

Goosebumps, to this day.

In addition to the great audio from the TBS broadcast, we also had the video that someone took from a block away, and the amazingly edited Standing Room Only that captured the entire game.

Today, I came across yet another angle of the hit that I hadn’t seen. Twitter/Instagram user “5Fifty3” tweeted this video to Bud Norris for Bud’s birthday. He says it was “centerfield above the pen,” but I think he means atop the CF rooftop deck bar.

Watch it here:

O’mazing.
