Rockies prospect crashes through wall on catch

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.

Old bag flips bird during wedding proposal pic

Do not, I repeat, DO NOT block this old lady's view when she is trying to watch her last-place Colorado Rockies host the D-backs in a shitty meaningless late-September matchup. She WILL get all pissy at you. Don't matter if you're trying to snap a photo of a wedding proposal -- she don't give a fuck, she's trying to watch Wilin Rosario out there.



Ryan Wheeler displays crazy beat-boxing skills

Rockies infielder Ryan Wheeler might be somewhat new to the Majors with just 136 career at-bats, but when it comes to beat-boxing, the 25-year-old California native is a seasoned vet. After he came through with an RBI single in Tuesday's 9-8 win over the Giants, the Rockies tweeted that fans should google him beat-boxing. Check out the video above, which features Wheeler giving his renditions of Usher's "Yeah!" and the theme song to the old-school Nickelodeon cartoon Doug.

All Coors Field's sprinklers go off during game

The bottom of fourth inning of the Rockies' matchup against the Giants on Monday was briefly interrupted when the Coors Field sprinkler system was turned on.

The disturbance only lasted a few seconds and none of Giants fielders or Rockies baserunners got soaked. Perhaps it brought some luck to the Rockies, who scored their second run of the inning after the incident. Colorado went on to win, 6-1.



Fan catches foul ball in beer at Rockies game

Your definitely not at a marquee matchup if you find yourself taking in a Padres/Rockies game in Mid-August, but Tuesday's game at Coors Field proved to be a great night at the ballpark for one heavily-bearded John-Deere-trucker-hat-wearing fan.

In the bottom of the sixth inning the fan got a souvenir in his beer as he somehow made a play on a foul ball off the bat of Dexter Fowler. Nice job but the guy to get the ball and still have some beer left to drink. The Padres went on to top the Rockies, 7-5.
