Shane Victorino Brings Us This Outfield Blooper (GIF)
Shane Victorino has won a Gold Glove Award in each of the last three seasons and he didn’t commit a single error all year in 2011, but you wouldn’t know it after watching him in center field during Game 4 of the NLDS last night.
While many will be quick to blame the bright evening sun, I would have to point to the many strawberry daiquiris that Victorino must have had in the visitor’s club house prior to the game as the cause of this atrocious fielding error in the bottom of the first inning during yesterday’s game. After all, the Phillies’ center fielder looked exactly how you would expect an intoxicated individual to look while playing a ball off the outfield wall.
Lance Berkman would end up with a triple on the play and the Cards would score one run. As for Victorino, he would sober up and was able to get through the rest of the game error-free.
