Pittsburgh Pirates third basemen Ke'Bryan Hayes looks like he has a bright future ahead of him. The 24-year-old is off to a hot start this season, hitting .333 with 2 home runs and 5 RBIs in just seven games.

However, after Tuesday night, he should have actually had three home runs if it were not for an embarrassing blunder made by the young infielder.

After hitting one over the fence, Hayes failed to touch first base when rounding it. This was then reviewed by replay and the home run was eventually turned into an out.

It's so rare to see these type of plays in pro baseball, especially for something so simple. This is something you would imagine seeing in a little league game. This is like when an NFL player drops the ball on the 1-yard line in celebration and loses a touchdown.

This will amount to an early career lesson for Hayes, and he'll forever have one less home run in his career than he should have.
