Fan Central: What makes an #SCTop10 video?

Welcome to another edition of ESPN Fan Central, where we answer your ESPN questions.


As ESPN’s extensive coverage of the 71st Little League World Series from Williamsport Pa., begins today on ESPN, we wanted to take the opportunity to look back at an amazing fan-submitted youth baseball highlight that eventually appeared on SportsCenter.

The video features a youngster’s leap over the catcher to score a run. A Twitter user submitted the video of the play using both #SCTop10 and #FCMailbag – for Front Row’s Fan Central Mailbag – hashtags. The kid’s heroics earned the No. 1 status on “Plays of the Week” for June 18, as the video took its place among standout highlights from across the sports spectrum (see both the tweet and SportsCenter videos below).

Have you ever wondered how you can submit a highlight to be featured on SportsCenter’s Top 10/Not Top 10? Front Row went behind-the-scenes with ESPN producer Tom Roche, who answered that question and more. Check out the video at the top of this post for all the details.

Stephen McDonald and Shelby Lacy produced the video above.
