The video clip captured by the drone runs for close to 3 minutes and runs through, the Patriots ballpark from Dallas Baptist University. The Texan University has since tweeted from their official handle and thanked the makers of the video, Sky Candy Studios for their support.

The internet reacted as expected to this footage with most users confused as to whether the facilities were better or it was the person responsible for the footage that deserved the higher laurels.

 

The video initially starts out from the pitcher’s mound with the ball making its way to home plate and a batter swinging with ferocity. A striking image that brings to mind some other iconic memories from MLB lore. And hopefully, with some help from skilled drone operators like these, we should have more opportunities to look at iconic videos like these from different angles now too.

Pete Rose’s 4192nd Base Hit

Pete Rose’s iconic hit to left-center field to secure his career 4192nd base hit in 1985 is etched into the annals of MLB history as clearly as any other and we can’t think of a reason why not. The Cincinnati Red went on to set records way past the mark, but the hit heard across Riverfront Stadium will likely echo for the years to come.

Hank Aaron’s 715th Homer

Hank Aaron is undoubtedly counted as one of the game’s greatest, and this game may be a large part of why he has reinforced his case. On a 1-0 pitch from Dodgers pitcher Al Downing, Hank Aaron swung hard and swung fast only for the ball to pop off the barrel off his bat and into history for his 715th career Home Run. Hammerin’ Hank would score countless other records, but it was this homer that took him past Babe Ruth which really ran his feature in the history books.

You just can’t have an all-time great list without this man featuring on it. On a sunny day in 1932, a man walked out in the 5th inning of game 3 of the World Series, to create history. With  2-2 count, Babe Ruth pointed toward the center in Chicago’s Wrigley Field and followed up by hitting a soaring home run high above the very spot to which he had just gestured.

You just can’t help but grin. The Yankees and the Cubs could decide the ebbs and flows of the game, but that moment belonged to Babe Ruth.
