Crawford Legs Out Inside-the-Park Homer

It’s the first of his career at any level.

Reggie Crawford legged out an inside-the-park home run for the Scottsdale Scorpions in Arizona Fall League action on Oct. 13, 2023.

North Schuylkill alum Reggie Crawford continues to make a big impact in the San Francisco Giants organization.

On Friday, the designated hitter for the Scottsdale Scorpions legged out a two-run inside-the-park home run in his team’s game against the Glendale Desert Dogs.

Crawford sent a 2nd-inning, full-count, two-out pitch on a fly ball to center field. The hit drove in teammate Trey Lipscomb.

When he hit the ball, Crawford didn’t think he’d be able to round the bases, but as he told MLB.com in a postgame interview, he got the signs to keep hustling:

“I mean, rounding second, I thought we were shutting it down at third, but then [third-base coach Drew Martinez] kept going and I was like, ’Alright’, So I had to turn the wheels — whatever wheels I had left — had to turn those on. I just knew that it was a big ballpark and if I’m going dead center, you gotta bust it out of the box. Definitely was feeling it around third base though.”

According to that report, it was his first-ever inside-the-park home run. It was his first home run of the Arizona Fall League season. The hit tied the game, 2-2, and his Scorpions would go on to win, 8-7, in 10 innings.

Crawford also doubled on Friday, going 2-for-4 at the plate, driving in his first 4 runs of Fall League play.

Lucky for you, you needn’t rely on just our text description of this. Crawford’s homer was captured by several cameras at Scottsdale Stadium today:
