Three years ago today, Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Chris Coghlan used an unconventional approach to reach home plate. In a tie ballgame, Blue Jays center fielder Kevin Pillar ripped a shot off the right field field wall. Coghlan, who was waved home, had to improvise in order to avoid the tag and a big collision with legendary catcher Yadier Molina.
The run proved to be crucial as the Blue Jays went on to win 7-6. Coghlan, who had come in as a pinch hitter, made the most of his opportunity in addition to making a lasting impression on Blue Jays fans.
In what would be his last season in Major League Baseball, Chris Coghlan provided fans with a memorable moment of athleticism and creativity.
