When the Rebels finally nailed down their thrilling 3-2 victory over Washington with a Scott Weathersby pitch, the players raced out of the dugout to celebrate.
It was the culmination of a long day of tense baseball, tedious rain delays and hot Swayze cheering.
HottyToddy.com captured the images in time-lapse fashion through the lens of photographer Andy Knef. The dedicated Rebel fans who stayed though a 90-minute rain delay were just as delirious with excitement.
Enjoy these scenes of pure baseball joy that starts with Sikes Orvis’ triple, Will Allen’s happy landing on home plate and climaxes with Weatherby’s gritty strikeout and proceeds to a series of joyous celebrations on the field with the cameramen and ladies right in the middle of it.
Enjoy, onto Lafayette, then to Omaha, and Hotty Toddy:
