Reed Johnson Makes An Amazing Catch On Prince Fielder
The Cubs had a 4 run (6-2) lead on the Brewers as first baseman Price Fielder stepped up to the plate with the bases loaded and a chance to tie the game with a grand slam. Fielder connected on a pitch and as soon as it left the bat there was no doubt that it was gone. But right fielder Reed Johnson had his eye on the ball and robbed Prince Fielder from the grand slam as the ball flew over the fence. After the catch Prince saluted Johnson on the amazing grab.
”I’ve never robbed a homer before,” Johnson told reporters. ”I told him (Fielder) at first the next inning, ‘I know you don’t want to hear this, but that’s the first time I’ve ever done that.”’
So if you thought Reed Johnson’s catch against the Washington Nationals last year was amazing then you have seen nothing yet, take a look.
