Angel Hernandez took a wild tumble over the dugout railing to make a call on Gio Urshela’s catch

Why take the stairs into the dugout when you can just roll right over it?

Umpire Angel Hernandez found out the answer the hard way during Sunday’s game between the New York Yankees and the Tampa Bay Rays. In the top of the sixth, Gio Urshela went running straight into the Rays’ dugout at full speed while attempting to catch a foul ball, bringing about shades of Derek Jeter’s famous dive into the stands.

The play was an incredible display of putting your body on the line in order to make something happen, but unfortunately Urshela went tumbling into benches and was slow to get up. Following right behind him, however, was Hernandez, who flipped over the railing to land in the dugout and made the call on Urshela’s heroic catch.

Talk about a stunning snag from Urshela — who was going really fast when he caught the ball and fell into the dugout, but was ultimately okay — and also absolute props to Hernandez for his eventual landing beside him to make the call for the out.

Both Urshela and Hernandez showed incredible dedication to their respective crafts to give baseball fans a hell of a highlight on the last day of the MLB regular season.
