VIDEO: Ryan Roberts Walk Off Grand Slam Produces One Of The Most Awesome Home Run Trots Ever

Check out Ryan Roberts walk off grand slam from last night. The Diamondbacks trailed the Dodgers 6-3 heading into the bottom of the 10th. The D-Backs rallied to load the bases and set up Roberts heroics. The grand slam won the game for the Diamondbacks and kept their home field advantage dreams alive. In addition to the home run heroics, Roberts provided an equally epic trot around the bases in which he re-enacted manager Kirk Gibson’s famous fist pumping of his 1988 World Series Home Run off of Dennis Eckersley, and also ripped off his jersey before jumping into a sea of teammates. The blast came three nights after Ryan Roberts Bobblehead Night in Arizona. The bobbleheads which came complete with Roberts tattooed arms are currently going bonkers on Ebay. Check out the Home Run trot below, a video from the stands during the blast, as well as the post game interview with Roberts.
