Unusual Sports Plays

     There are certain times in sports where there's an unorthodox play. There's always that one instance where you either stand up in awe or you scratch your head, thinking "What just happened?". These events rarely happen in the sports world and are usually discussed amongst social circles in infamy. Here are some of these plays.

  • Miguel Cabrera Gets a Base Hit Off of an Attempted Intentional Walk (June 22, 2006):
       Long before he won the Triple Crown and won the 2012 AL MVP with the Tigers, Miguel Cabrera was wrecking havoc with the Florida Marlins. Cabrera got a single off of Baltimore Orioles pitcher Todd Williams in the Top of the 10th to give the Marlins a 6-5 lead. Florida went on to win this game 8-5.

  • Martin Brodeur Scores a Goal Against the Carolina Hurricanes (March 21, 2013):

        This wasn't the first time that the New Jersey Devils goalie has scored. He scored a goal in a regular season game against the Montreal Canadians in 1997.

  • Kevin Na Scores a 16 on a Par 4 at the 2011 Valero Texas Open:

        The South Korean professional PGA player also scored a 10 on the 12th hole at the Masters. Look up "Kevin Na can't swing" on YouTube and you'll see how he's able to etch these scores on his scorecard.

  • Mark Sanchez and the Infamous "Butt Fumble" (November 22, 2012):

        This fumble was the epitome of the 2012 regular season for the New York Jets. Marred by quarterback controversies and constant media coverage (Most of it being on Tim Tebow), Gang Green finished 6-10 that season and missed the playoffs.

  • Mike Tyson Bites Off Evander Holyfield's Ear (June 28, 1997):

        As a result of chomping off a bit of Holyfield's ear, "Iron Mike" had his boxing license revoked by the Nevada State Athletic Commission and was fined USD $3 million plus legal costs. However, Tyson did go on to make a cameo appearance in The Hangover and he even has his own animated series coming on Adult Swim.
