I was watching sportscenter’s top 10 this morning and I did a slight double take. As you’ll notice above, The Mets’ Ike Davis made a catch while falling into his team’s dugout. You’ll also notice his teammate giving him caressing support on his way down. I guess the cup offers more than adequate grip for a catch of that magnitude, but I can’t help but think he held on a bit long(not to mention the slight squeeze or adjustment at the end).
Being as MLB is much like NBC with the Olympics, only all the time, you’ll find a crappy embedded video after the frump, as well as a link to the official HQ version.
