Justin Verlander balk of the year

USA - Major League Baseball - Detroit Tigers-v-Oakland Athletics

In the fifth inning, the A's led 3-1. Daric Barton was on first having walked. David DeJesus was batting. Detroit Tigers right-hander Justin Verlander winds up for a pitch with the intention of picking off Barton at first base.

Midway through the move, he realizes his body is misaligned and decides to lob the ball to home that ends up hitting the batter. A comedy of errors that confused the umpires into calling a timeout.

About World Sport Bloopers

World Sport Bloopers was created following the frustration of using video sites. Many offered videos that were filed under 'funny' or 'humor' but were not specific to sport. It required a lot of searching to find what we wanted. Even when you found the video, it was often edited poorly or inserted in a news segment so it had less impact.

World Sport Bloopers is inspired by UK shows like Fantasy Football (hosted by comedians David Baddiel and Frank Skinner), the eccentric Frenchman Remi Gaillard and US shows like Jackass. We aim to bring you the best bloopers, fails and WTF moments. We hope you enjoy the site!!
