Earlier this week, we treated you to Manny Ramirez's "slide" into second base that came up a tad bit short in a Chinese Professional Baseball League game.

Well, apparently the art of sliding has universally gone out of style.

Thursday night in a game against the Detroit Tigers, Texas Rangers second baseman Ian Kinsler attempted to go first to third on a single by Elvis Andrus.

Unlike Ramirez, Kinsler has no problem reaching the base. Instead, the former ASU standout went right over the bag head-first and beat up his face in the process.

If you have small children still learning the game, hide them...NOW!
