30 GIFs of Baseball's Biggest Bloopers

When one thinks baseball, one envisions the grace of Carlos Beltran, the strength of Albert Pujols, and the butt sliding of Jonathan Villar. Err -- maybe not. But after all, baseball is a skill sport that tolerates some out-of-shape players. And for all its great athletic plays, it has an equal number of Miguel Cabrera-tripping-over-third-base moments. Here is the worst of the worst.
