Little baseball player has crowd cheering when he disobeys his coach
His coach told him to run home as fast as he can, but he insisted on running bases his own way.
Lennox Salcedo was playing a baseball game in the Walnut Pony Baseball League in Walnut, California when he decided to take the instruction of his coach to “run home as fast as he can” in a surprising direction, as reported by ABC News.
The 3-year-old boy decided to re-enact slow-motion replays as he ran across the base.
His father, who was on the field coaching, even attempted to speed-up Lennox's journey home at one point, but he still ran the bases in “slow motion."
Twitter user, ratby, Lennox's cousin, took a video of the hilarious moment and posted it on his personal Twitter account.
He wrote: "If any of you need a laugh, the coach told my cousin to run home as fast as he can and he delivered."
Posted on April 29, 2018, the video went viral, with 8.55 million views and more than 140,000 Twitter users retweeting it with their friends and family.
It has also been liked more than 427,000 times and elicited more than 2,000 comments.
Twitter user Maria Cruz commented: "For a second I thought my video was loading but then I saw the guy in white move and realized the kid was going that slow."
"I love how he pushed him off like, 'Don’t rush me. This is my moment,'" user louisiana shit added.
Jim Meehan also commented, saying he wondered if Lennox was "imitating the slow motion steal of home at the end of Sandlot."
Other Twitter users also defended Lennox from the Internet trolls who trash talked him.
Erico wrote: "The majority of the people on this thread taking shit about a 3 year old being funny have no life, are white, and trump supporters. Smh. I can’t believe this what grown adults are doing with there time. I invite you to reply if you have a problem."
According to ABC News, though Lennox may not have a future in baseball, he might have a bright future in comedy.
