Jose Altuve is one of our favorite baseball players because he is about 10 inches shorter than I am and is not only a professional athlete, but a good one, a two-time all-star with the Houston Astros. However, him being short sometimes leads to funny moments like this:
Normally, you'd never swing at a pitch over your head, but Altuve had to protect the runner on a hit-and-run. And normally you'd be tall enough to hit a pitch about, what, 5 feet, 3 inches off the ground, but Jose Altuve is not. So he had to jump to hit a ball that would be a strike for most guys. He did his job, fouling this off and preventing an easy caught-stealing.
