Last week 97.1 The Ticket staffers dunked on Dan Leach and Jeff Riger.

I have to admit the Leach dunk is so much better than the Riger one only because Leach knew it would happen and he tried to get out of the way. Riger didn’t really know what was going on.

Now the phenomenon has reached the Miami Marlins dugout. The Marlins’ broadcaster described it as a wrestling move gone wrong but Khang (producer of Valenti and Foster) and myself are convinced it was a dunk attempt. But it was more hardcore since it was two hands, almost as if it were a dunk Shaq would make in his younger years.

The dunker is Tom Koehler and it appears to me he tried to dunk on Jarrod Saltalamacchia. The entire team joined around a TV to watch the the replay. Halfway through the video, fromer Marlin Preston Wilson did acknowledge it was a dunk attempt.

You can be the judge — Is this a wrestling move?
