Baseball Tonight Web Gems for April 15
Jackie Robinson Day 2009 was a memorable one for several reasons, one being the wealth of defensive talent being put on display. Rays backup catcher Michel Hernandez leads off with his great scoop of a wild pitch late in the game against the Yankees.
The Pirates’ Nyjer Morgan makes an outstanding diving catch in center field that could be #1 on a normal night. Jay Bruce also makes a top-quality diving catch, one of many he will make in his career.
Nick Green’s over-the-shoulder catch to save what was then a no-hit bid for Tim Wakefield was outstanding, and could have elevated him to local hero status if Wakefield ended up getting the no-no.
Brandon Inge makes the list yet again, this time reaching #1 with his putout from at least four feet into foul territory. The kid is a defensive guru, there’s no doubt about that.
