A Better Catch

By Brad Hubbard | @bradhubbard

Last week saw two tremendous catches in Major League Baseball. One by a fan and another by Toronto Blue Jays third baseman Josh Donaldson. One was legal and one wasn’t.

One Handed

A dad at a Chicago Cubs vs LA Dodgers game made a one handed grab. While impressive it was actually illegal. The fan interfered with a ball in the field of play. After a review the Cubs batter, pitcher Josh Hammel, was called out. As SF Giants announcer Mike Krukow would say, ‘you are not a Labrador.’

Now Donaldson on the other hand made a catch out of play and no fans interfered. It’s arguably one of the better catches you will ever see and even more amazing is the fact that he didn’t hurt himself.

Two great grabs. One legal and one illegal. Just another week in baseball.
