    Rare baseball oddity,Batter strikes out on 1 pitch

    Here's a paragraph and link to the whole article and video:

    http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/mlb-big-league-stew/astros-minor-leaguer-vinnie-catricala-strikes-one-pitch-182609577.html

    The wonderful thing about baseball is that even the impossible is still possible.

    For example, during the Midland Rock Hounds (Oakland A's) Double-A battle against the Corpus Christi Hooks (Houston Astros) on Friday night, Rock Hounds third baseman Vinnie Catricala pulled off something so rarely seen, I had to triple check to make a sure it actually existed.

    In one single pitch, Catricala struck out against Nick Tropeano.

    I knew an umpire could call a strike if the batter wasn't in the batter's box when he should, but I've never seen it called.

    hahaha that was funny as heck! A classic overreaction by the Umpire though.

    Vinnie Catricala's stock certainly has dropped since 2011 when the University of Hawaii product posted a .349/.421/.601/1.052 line in 600 plate appearances as a 22-year-old in High A and Double A:

    I have to agree.The umpire called the 2 strikes and tossed him in about 10 seconds.He apparently didn't like getting shown up.

    That was terrible - an umpire trying to become the focus of the game.  Nothing good can come of that.
