You might want to put down your coffee to watch the latest viral home plate collision.
In a 2A Iowa high school playoff game between Wilton and Denver this week, Wilton junior Cory Anderson sent Denver catcher Kain Eagle airborne during a collision at home plate.
The collision occurred as Eagle worked his way up the third base line to field a throw. Anderson and Wilton were awarded the run for the first score of the game, and would go on to win 3-2 to advance to the state semifinals.
Per The Quad-City Times:
With two outs in the bottom of the third, Anderson belted a shot over the outstretched arm of Denver center-fielder Timmy Arians, who slipped before tracking the ball down at the wall. Anderson was credited with a triple and scored off the error after a collision with Denver's catcher to give Wilton a 1-0 lead.
"I didn't even think I'd be going to third honestly," Anderson said. "He (coach Jake Souhrada) told me to go home, and I just kicked on the jets and made it home."
