A lot of rain and a questionable call at the plate help the Appalachian State baseball team go viral this weekend.
The Friday rain delay left the Mountaineers “robbed” of an inside the park home run. The video was picked up and shared by major sports outlets such as CBS Sports, Sports Illustrated, NBC Sports and Yahoo Sports just to name a few.
