Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder Kole Calhoun made a big mistake Sunday in the sixth inning of a game against the Chicago Cubs.
Calhoun was at bat with bases loaded and an exit when he hit a Grounder along the first base line. Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo lined up the ball and threw it home to save the second of the inning.

Chicago wide receiver Robinson Chirinos thought the game was over but noticed Calhoun didn’t make it to first base. Instead, Calhoun picked up his helmet and did not attempt to make it to the base.
After the game, Calhoun told reporters he stopped to make sure nothing was hurt again. But he had no explanation as to why he picked up his helmet, according to Athleticism.

“You win the ball game and it’s easy to laugh,” he added.
