It may be the weirdest batting stance in baseball history.
ESPN video tweeted by MLB's Cut 4 website from Saturday afternoon’s game against Australia shows 12-year-old Deivis Ordonez nearly sitting on the ground as he takes a pitch for a strike in the fifth inning.
Then on the very next pitch, Ordonez stood upright and bunted his way on base. Later, he showed off his dancing skills to the Williamsport crowd.
But his crouching style was so unorthodox that it has already been mimicked by social media sensation “Batting Stance Guy,” who imitates the stances of various ballplayers.
As for Saturday’s game, Venezuela topped Australia 2-0.
The World Series continues Sunday with two international games and two games between U.S.-based teams.
