Sunday Morning at Yankee Stadium, two of the New York Yankees larger men, Brian McCann and Billy Butler engaged in a sprint to determine once and for all who is the faster man.
The two were tied neck and neck as they were sprinting down the field but halfway through the race, McCann started to slow down. Butler took advantage and beat McCann by a hair and was awarded a mobbing from his teammates as he crossed the finish line.
After the race, you could see McCann topple over and lie on the ground to catch his breath as he watched Butler celebrate his victory.
Definitely entertaining to watch, being that McCann and Butler are two of the slowest guys in all of baseball. McCann has 24 career stolen bases while Butler has five, making it 29 career steals between the two.
