Wichita State baseball player snags a squirrel with his batting helmet [Video]

The nation was introduced to Wichita State when the Shockers pulled off a Cinderella run to the Final Four in the 2013 NCAA Basketball Tournament.

Well, we still have a ways to go before baseball heads to Omaha for the College World Series, but just in case the Shockers don’t make it that far, we found a way to get them a headline anyways.

This, ladies and gentlemen, is WSU’s Tylor Baker. When a squirrel meanders onto the diamond, Baker has the wherewithal to snag the little guy with his helmet before jogging right on off the field with it.

We can’t call this a “web gem,” but we’re diggin’ it just the same.
