It looked like a sure out.
Chris Coghlan of the Toronto Blue Jays was heading for home, but a throw from the outfield to St. Louis catcher Yadier Molina got there first. Coghlan's solution? He dove over the catcher and executed a mid-air somersault onto home plate. See the video at MLB.com.
He was ruled safe, and the Blue Jays went on to win 6-5. Mashable notes that the movie Major League II featured the same stunt.
