New York Yankees center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury swung his way into the history books on Monday night. While there are countless MLB records that may never be broken again, Ellsbury reaching base via his 30th catcher’s interference is a mark that will be ultra difficult to ever surpass.

Ellsbury has become known for his bizarre ability to have his swing clip a catcher’s mitt. It’s a unique way to reach base, one that may or may not actually be a “skill” in the heat of a contest, but will no doubt give him an all-time record for the foreseeable future.
