Russell Martin Does Parkour, Still Doesn’t Make the Catch (Video)
Though Blue Jays catcher Russell Martin didn’t catch this foul ball, it sure wasn’t due to a lack of effort. The catcher scaled a short wall, then just decided that he wasn’t going to get on the roof of the Angels’ dugout.
I don’t think there’s anything he could have done to get that ball, but it sure was fun to watch him try. You can see the look of determination in his eyes as he tosses his mask off – he wants that ball.
Here’s the clip. Don’t get in Russell Martin’s way:
This comes a day after Mike Troute took a swing, shattered his bat, and sent shrapnel to Martin’s head behind the plate.Glad to see that incident hasn’t affected his facilities.
