I Love The New Eject Bases That The Houston Astros Use

How else can you explain why Houston Astros shortstop Marwin Gonzalez went flying into the air after hitting first base.  Gonzalez was lucky to have only suffered a sprained ankle. Anyone else cringe when the camera pans into the stands behind the Astros bench?  I counted four people still in the stands.  Yikes.

Marwin Gonzalez Launches Himself Into Air, Sprains Ankle While Tripping Over First Base (Video)
