He may not be a professional baseball player, but one 3-year-old boy is getting national attention for his moves on the field.

During an intense game of little league in Walnut, California a coach told the boy to run as fast as he can to home plate. But the player, 3-year-old Lennox Salcedo, had a better idea. He'd run in slow motion!

The toddler stayed committed to his slow-mo run, even shaking off his dad who tried to get him to speed up. Lennox finally collapsed onto home plate 45 seconds after leaving third base.

The video was posted Sunday and so far has gotten more than 6 million views.
