A Baseball Player Tried to Make a Catch Ten Feet Short of the Wall . . . But the Ball Bounced Off His Glove and Went Over for a Home Run.
Detroit Tigers outfielder RYAN RABURN has been having defensive issues all season. But this is something special... In Tuesday's game against the Seattle Mariners, Raburn tried to make a somewhat routine catch at the warning track in left field, but the ball bounced off his glove and went over the fence for a homerun. This type of play isn't really that rare, and it happened most notably in 1993 when a ball bounced off JOSE CANSECO'S HEAD.
--But this one was different, because if Raburn hadn't touched it, the ball would have landed about ten feet short of the wall.
