This kid must be related to Joey Gathright!

It's a bird! It's a plane! It's a ... Fordham baseball player?

Yes, that's college boy Brian Kownacki joining Mark Buehrle and Paul Maholm as an early contender for the baseball play of the year with this unbelievable and successful leap turned handspring over Iona catcher James Beck on Tuesday. The soaring Superman play wasn't just for show, either. It was part of a nine-run rally in the eighth inning that helped Fordham overcome an early 9-1 deficit en route to a 12-9 win.

This video is already going viral like FAU's funny rain delay theater — and deservedly so. I think it has leapfrogged Maholm and Buehrle to be the best of 2010's bunch. Watch it below.

That was pretty cool, I like how the other teams manager was freaking out.

I still have never, NEVER, ever seen anything like Buehrle's play before in my life. Thats the web gem of the decade. Cool to, cuz i saw it live.

I've always dreamed of doing this very same thing. I'm glad to finally see someone attempt it.
