Opening day was a wild one to say the least. The defending champion Los Angeles Dodgers took the L for game one, but the game produced one of the crazier moments in recent baseball history.

In the top of the third inning, Justin Turner singled to right field, setting up the kid they call Bopper to do his thing. Bop. Cody Bellinger, surgically repaired shoulder and all, stepped the plate and stroked a high fly ball to right field.

Then things got crazy.

Here we throw to breakdown correspondent Jimmy “Jomboy” O’Brien for what the heck happened.
