Alex Gordon Newsbeat
Wednesday, February 25, 2015
Mike Jirschele has been a third-base coach going on 20 years. In that time, he has made thousands of decisions about sending guys, holding guys, and obviously not all of them turned out well.
But of all of those moments — Jirschele has decided to send guys or not as many times as most of us have decided to stop for gas or not — the Gordon play will never be one he’ll second-guess or regret.
As a way to simplify it, he asks what people would’ve thought had that been a sacrifice fly that Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford caught in shallow left field. The only way you’d even consider sending Gordon in that situation would be if Crawford was drifting backward, and even then it would be a risk.

The rewind: Giants center fielder Gregor Blanco misplayed Gordon’s base hit and the ball rolled to the wall at Kauffman Stadium, where left fielder Juan Perez complicated matters by mishandling it. Gordon kept running, not always at full go, until given the stop sign by Royals third-base coach Mike Jirschele.
What if Gordon had kept motoring and tried to score from third?
The answer remains forever unknown. But the wondering will never cease.
In that spirit, the Rockhurst University baseball team took time from its preseason preparation — the Hawks open on Feb. 24 — to become players in a re-enactment.
