VIDEO: Alex Presley Hits Lead Off Inside-The-Park Home Run

Pittsburgh Pirates fans saw some very early fireworks when center fielder Alex Presley hit a leadoff inside-the-park home run.

A video of the rare feat can be found HERE.

It was the first leadoff inside-the-park home run in the MLB since another Pirate speedster, Omar Moreno, accomplished the feat in 1980.

St. Louis Cardinals center fielder Skip Schumaker was shaken up on the play and came out of the game. He was replaced by Erik Komatsu. There has been no update as to what the injury to Schumaker was.
