Ian Desmond hits homer, goes vertical

Hey, one more thing about Ian Desmond’s walk-off two-run home run Wednesday night.

When he crossed the plate, he jumped up into the air. Pretty high. See below.

“How high was the vert when you touched home plate?” Mike Lowell asked Desmond on MLB Network (Video above). “That [was] pretty good. I’ve got at least 36 inches. You’ve got a little Jordan; all you’ve got to do is put your tongue out and we’re ready to rock posters.”

“Hey, I’m just trying to win ballgames,” Desmond said. “It was something I’ve never experienced in my life, and it couldn’t have come at a better time.”
