MLB Network Host Loses It After Predicting Buster Posey Walk-off HR on Air

San Francisco Giants star Buster Posey hit a walk-off home run against the Colorado Rockies on Wednesday night, but his celebration was much calmer than that of MLB Network host Greg Amsinger.

You'd expect the player who hit a game-winning home run to be the most excited person in the world at the time, but that wasn't the case. That honor belongs to Amsinger, who—just seconds before Posey hit the ball—had predicted that the Giants star would hit a home run to end the game.

Nobody can deny Amsinger of his moment. He called it on the air, which meant he was allowed to celebrate.

Posey's two-run shot with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning gave the Giants a 4-2 victory.
