China’s Fujia Chu Makes Embarrassing Baserunning Gaffe in World Baseball Classic (Video)


Monday was not a banner day for Team China. In the midst a 12-0 steamrolling at the hands of Cuba in the first round of the World Baseball Classic, China first baseman Fujia Chu secured his spot on the nightly highlight reels — and not in a good way.

With one out in the top of the second, Chu stole second base on a dropped ball by the catcher. But upon reaching the base, he inexplicably turned around and began jogging back to first, trapping himself in a short rundown before he was eventually tagged out.

Check out the video below and see if you can determine what was going through Chu’s mind. (h/t Big League Stew)
