VIDEO: Never Forget Brooks Conrad Capping off Braves' Epic Comeback With Walk-Off Grand Slam 10 Years Ago
By Andrew Gullotta
Get ready to transport back in time, Braves fans! Remember that insane walk-off grand slam by Brooks Conrad back in 2010? Yup, that hit against the Cincinnati Reds capped a seven-run bottom of the ninth for Atlanta in the dramatic victory.
What a moment. The Braves won 10-9 and this just makes us want baseball to return even more.
The coolest thing about the video is that Conrad didn't even think he hit a home run. The pinch hitter thought left fielder Laynce Nix caught the ball and even stopped at first base before sprinting around the bases to celebrate with his teammates.
Even the Braves' announcers were in shock after being under the assumption his hit was going to be a sacrifice fly. Instead, they called an epic walk-off bomb for the home crowd.
Old epic highlights like these make us crave baseball even more as we continue to wait for the sport to return. But we can't complain about sitting back and watching some awesome moments from years ago, right?
