MLB player leaps over catcher to score acrobatic 'Major League II' style run

As he neared home after a triple from Kevin Pillar, Coghlan lept into the air above the catcher, clearing his tag out. More impressively: he scored.

The run is a pitch perfect recreation of a scene from the comedy Major League II, when Willie Mays Hayes does, well, the exact same thing.
