Philadelphia Philles middle fielder Odubel Herrera took a residence run away from Reds’ Scooter Gennett within the tenth inning of Wednesday night time’s recreation by timing his leap completely and snagging the ball earlier than it carried over the fence.
It was a troublesome play to make — and that diploma of problem could also be seen in a new mild should you consider Herrera wasn’t even wanting on the ball when he caught it, which a number of replays current as a risk.
By basketball requirements, this might be thought-about “no-look.” However which will say extra about how that time period is used liberally. Which means: a lot of so-referred to as “no-look” passes are not any harder than they might be if eye contact was maintained. The movement is nearly accomplished when the eyes look away. The cake is baked and the remaining is simply icing.
Similar factor right here with Herrera. He didn’t technically watch the ball into the glove, however I’m unsure not doing so made the play extra spectacular or if doing so would have made the play any simpler, contemplating the top tilt required.
It definitely seemed cool, although.
