Bo Jackson, Home to Home

One of today's SB Nation pieces by Rob Neyer sent me to his final ESPN.com piece from a year ago, which brought me childhood memories of Bo Jackson. Neyer included a Youtube link with amazing Bo Jackson footage, but it's not what I wanted to share.

With a little extra digging, I found the following clip of Bo Jackson hitting an inside the park home run off Bob Welch.

To see someone round the bases in 15 seconds, please enjoy:

Two of the more amazing happenings of this game:
  1. Bo's run scored in the 2nd inning would be the only run the Royals scored until the 11th inning, in a 2-1 victory.
  2. Royals' Mark Gubicza pitched 10 innings for a No Decision.
Game was played on June 12, 1989.

Thanks to Baseball-Reference and Retrosheet for the box score.
