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

When you're rounding third toward a catcher waiting for you at home plate, your options are limited. You can plow into the catcher and attempt to knock the ball free, risking injury, or you can be tagged out.

Toronto Blue Jays Chris Coghlan chose a third option: flight.

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.
