Southern Illinois’ Jake Hand blasted a line-drive to the left-field wall during the Salukis’ victory over Stenson on Sunday. Hatters outfielder Austin Bogart got on his horse to chase it down and ended up running through the fence — presumably because someone forgot to lock it up. Hand was able to sprint around the bases for an inside-the-park home run during the chaos.
Bogart escaped injury. No word if the buildings and grounds people got chewed out for not making sure the fence’s latch was in place.
