Hell Has Frozen Over

If this is real -- and I can find no indication that it was faked -- it probably qualifies as the unlikeliest event I have ever seen:

As I mentioned at HotAir, I saw this live on TV when it happened, so it's very real.

Sorry, I'm not so sure. The video is clearly Martin Prado vs. Billy Wagner. That matchup has occurred exactly once, Sept 12 2007 (like the poster of the video said). But: nether the Yahoo nor MLB writeups for that game even mention it, much less make it the main issue they would if something as unusual as that happened.

(and yeah, I probably just put way too much effort into this. :-P)

Attila is right.

I have a subscription to mlb.com video and watched it just a few seconds ago. Prado was the batter, and it occurred as he grounded out to second on a 3-2 count. The live feed did not show it at all - only the replay that they showed a few pitches later.

Pretty Amazing
