Rays Outfielder Steven Souza Chooses To Dive For Baseball Nowhere Near Him (VIDEO)
‘A’ for effort?
On Friday, Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Steven Souza Jr. was so sure he had a good read on a fly ball off the bat of Minnesota Twins slugger Kennys Vargas, but his eyes truly deceived him.
The ball landed at least 10 feet away from him, but that didn’t stop Souza from diving to make a terrible effort to catch it.

Following the game, Souza had fun at his own expense.
@statcast can you we get a breakdown on my play tonight?

@SouzaJr We checked: You needed to cover 73 feet and came up … 23 short.
0% catch probability, but a five-star effort!
