Check Out This Great Catch That Evan Longoria Didn’t Actually Make (Video)

Making great catches is nothing new for Evan Longoria.  After all, the Tamp Bay Rays’ third baseman has earned a Gold Glove award in each of the past two season for his great work with the leather on the hot corner.

With that being said, it isn’t hard to see why some may think that his incredible bare-handed grab on a ball that was headed for a female reporter’s head during a recent interview might actually be real.  Well I’d hate to rain on anyone’s parade, but this clip is clearly a fake.

So who is responsible for this act of trickery?  Those Gillette banners at the top of the stadium and Longoria’s endorsement contract with the company as one of their “Young Guns” should make that answer a fairly obvious one.
