Watch Tampa Bay Rays Nelson Cruz hit weird home run (Video)

Tampa Bay Rays designated hitter Nelson Cruz hit a weird home run in Game 1 of the ALDS.

In the third inning off Game 1 of the ALDS between the Tampa Bay Rays and the Boston Red Sox, designated hitter Nelson Cruz hit a home run that was confusing to fans and players but ultimately counted.

It’s not clear in the video, but the game is in Tropicana Field which is a domed ballpark. Cruz’s home run traveled so high that it hit the cat walk near the roof of the field. Here is a better look at the contraptions that interfered with the ball.

By rule, a ball that is hit off that structure is a home run. Tampa Bay and their fans will take it. The odd home run puts the rays up 3-0 over the Red Sox. They will try to hold on to this lead and take Game 1 of the five game series.
