Watch Boston Red Sox infielder Eduardo Nunez hit an inside-the-park homer


In an iconic 1998 Nike ad the phrase, "Chicks dig the long ball!" became part of the American lexicon.

It is true that as a female, I do me love some home runs--but I "dig" the inside-the-park homer so much more!

And on Opening Day for Major League Baseball, the Boston Red Sox's second baseman Eduardo Nunez didn't disappoint; as he gave us baseball fans an exciting play when he hit an inside-the-park home run.

In the second inning, with 1 out and a man on 3rd base, Nunez hit a fly ball to left-center field and while Tampa Bay Rays outfielders Denard Span and Kevin Kiermaier tried to make a play but they almost collided and the ball rolled toward the wall at Tropicana Field.

Xander Bogaerts was able to score on the HR and the play put the Red Sox up 3-0 .

It was also the first Red Sox opening day inside-the-park home run in 50 years.

Nunez seem to have the Rays number as he has hit an inside-the-park home run against them before --but it was back in 2016 when he was a member of the Minnesota Twins.
