An adorable three-year-old baseball player in California won’t be breaking speed records any time soon, but his viral video is capturing hearts across the country after he insisted on running the bases in “slow motion” to mark the memorable moment.
Lennox Salcedo was wrapping up his baseball game this week in Walnut, California when he decided to take his coach’s instruction to “run home as fast as he can” in an unexpected direction.

The future all-star decided to re-enact slow-motion replays as he dashed across the base; at one point shrugging off his father who attempted to speed-up the youngster’s journey home.
The video appeared on social media and went viral within minutes, garnering nearly 100,000 views by Tuesday afternoon.

The tweet was in response to President Trump’s harsh criticism of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Speaker of the House Paul Ryan for creating “a mess” over debt ceiling legislation.
“I requested that Mitch M & Paul R tie the Debt Ceiling legislation into the popular V.A. Bill (which just passed) for easy approval. They didn’t do it so now we have a big deal with Dems holding them up (as usual) on Debt Ceiling approval. Could have been so easy-now a mess!” wrote the President.
HILARIOUS: Trump DITCHES Speech, Says Prepared Remarks 'TOO BORING'
President Trump flipped the script -literally- during a panel discussion in West Virginia Thursday; physically tossing aside his prepared remarks and holding a casual briefing after calling his written comments “too boring.”
The President was speaking with industry leaders when he veered away from his prepared script, saying, “This was going to be my remarks. It would have taken two minutes, but what hell.” The Commander-in-Chief then tossed the papers into the air.
“That would have been a little boring. Little boring,” he said. “I’m reading off the first paragraph. I said, ‘This is boring. Come on. We have to tell it like it is.'”
