A college pitcher went to extreme lengths while trying to prevent a runner from scoring in a recent D-III game.

YouTube user HendrixBaseballFan uploaded a video Sunday of a game between Hendrix College (Conway, Ark.) and Berry College (Mount Berry, Ga.). In the clip, the Berry hurler throws a pitch in the dirt, which allows a runner on third base to attempt to steal home.

The runner, junior center fielder Collin Radack, looks to be in for an easy score when he is viciously tackled by the Berry pitcher.

Check it out:

Berry's athletic director told Larry Brown Sports that the pitcher has been suspended for the school's next three conference games.
