Minor League Baseball Player Falls Over Outfield Wall While Making Impressive Catch [VIDEO]
When it comes to sports, baseball ranks behind professional football, college football, high school football, flag football, and video game football on my list. I don’t dislike the game, I just don’t have a particular team I follow, and watching the games on TV can sometimes be as exciting as watching paint dry or grass grow. However, that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have more than its fair share of exciting plays like this one during a recent minor league game in Texas.
The catch below inadvertently became a team effort as Austin Wates and Brandon Barnes of the Corpus Christi Hooks both went after the same pop-fly. A pop-fly that would have been a home run had Wates not kept his eye on the ball all the way to his glove. See kids, this is why you always practice the fundamentals!
While we’re on the subject, our very own Evansville Otters begin their pursuit of the 2012 Frontier League championship with a home stand at Bosse Field against the Washington Wild Things May 18th – 20th followed by a three game set at home against the Southern Illinois Miners May 21st – 23rd.
Two days before that opening home stand (Wednesday, May 16th to be exact), I’ll be broadcasting live from Bosse Field for the official season kick-off pep rally from 4-6pm. Bring the whole family and enjoy $1.00 hot dogs, popcorn, and peanuts while you hang out and get pictures and autographs with Otters players and sign up for free prizes and other giveaways.
