Check out this INSANE grab made by Rockies prospect Tyler Massey during a recent Australian Baseball League game for the Melbourne Aces. Massey, who's American, goes all out to rob Astros prospect Joe Sclafani, who plays for the ABL's Adelaide Bite.
You've got to love Massey's effort and toughness on this play. You've also got to admire the love of the game by these players in the Australian Baseball League. Massey recently said that he thought twice about sliding head-first into the bag, because players in the ABL had to do their own laundry. But it ain't all that bad, I'm sure being a pro athlete and getting to travel to a place like Australian has it's perks too. I'm talking surfer chicks with Australian accents. Just stock up on that laundry detergent, man.
Sure Massey's catch was outstanding, but the classic play below by Rodney McCray in a 1991 Minor League game remains the gold standard of running-through-the-wall catches.
