Here's a pretty awesome video taken from the point of view of the Leap Frogs -- the US Navy Parachute Team -- as they jump from a plane 6,500 feet up and land smoothly on the bright green grass of Citizens Bank Park's field.

According to the video they're falling at 120 mph towards earth.

The practice run took place over the weekend and the Frogs were set to jump into CBP today but the home opener has been postponed until tomorrow at 4:05 pm. The Frogs will make their leap then, weather permitting.
