Houston Astros Jonathan Villar Commits Unfortunate Butt Slide [VIDEO]
As if being part of a team that secured their 100th loss of the season, Jonathan Villar found a way to make his life worse last night against the Cincinnati Reds. Villar tried unsuccessfully to stretch a single into a double and found himself in a very unfortunate situation as he slid into 2nd base. When Villar slid into 2nd base, he wound up sliding right into the posterior of Reds 2nd baseman Brandon Phillips.
Since last night’s infamous slide, Villar has become the talk of the internet, even including a frame-by-frame shot of the play from every angle.
Here is footage of the actual slide by Jonathan Villar below:
Villar’s slide may finally take some heat off of Mark Sanchez who has been tortured by a similar play, now know as the “butt fumble.”
