Baseball Tonight Web Gems for April 12

You know it was a great night for defense when this play by Reed Johnson, possibly a catch of the year candidate, didn’t even make the Baseball Tonight top 5! Watch Johnson here, or in HD at YouTube, as he robs Prince Fielder of his first career grand slam with an amazing, perfectly-timed catch.

I’m going to assume that catch gets special privileges or something, because it’s astounding that it wasn’t one of Baseball Tonight’s Web Gems. But here are the actual ones, starting with Brandon Inge making the top 5 for the second straight day. Jayson Werth makes a nice sliding catch; Royals reserve OF Willie Bloomquist makes another; Orlando Cabrera makes a nice stop and throw from the outfield grass; and Jack Wilson of the Pirates makes a spectacular dive-stop and flip of the ball to Freddy Sanchez who turns the double play.
