Twins Left Fielder Oswaldo Arcia Demonstrates How Not to Catch a Pop Fly (Video)
The other day we showed you how not to bunt. Today we’re going to show you how not to catch a pop fly.
The highlight comes to us courtesy of the Minnesota Twins. The poor Twinkies are not having a good year, and things are getting worse by the day. They have lost nine of their last 10 games, dropping to 13 games below .500 and 11 games back in the AL Central. Then, last night, as if to underscore his team’s recent struggles, left fielder Oswaldo Arcia ran over to catch a pop fly foul ball in Tampa, but he lost the ball in the horrible lights of Tropicana Field and took the ball right off his face.
Check it out:
That probably hurt a little bit. But hey, at least he stayed in the game, helping his team close out another loss.
