Cameron Maybin hits inside-the-park home run for Florida Marlins

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks


Florida Marlins' Cameron Maybin has speed to burn, which is a really good thing to have when attempting an inside-the-park home run.

Maybin successfully completed the rare feat Monday when his liner to center was misplayed by the Milwaukee Brewers' Carlos Gomez.

It was the 15th inside-the-parker in Marlins history, and Maybin knew he had it the whole way.

He had a great jump out there," Maybin said of Gomez. "Once I saw it get by him, I knew he had a lot of ground to cover out there in that triangle. I was thinking four, for sure."
Maybin and the Marlins breezed to a 13-5 victory over a rabid crowd of 10,115 at Sun Life Stadium in Miami.
