Joc Pederson Tries To Rob A Home Run, Loses His Glove Over the Wall

Baseball Is Fun

Joc Pederson has escaped the national attention this season, after bursting onto the scene early last year, crushing 20 home runs before the All-Star break, as a 23 year-old rookie.

In 2016, things have indeed been quiet. Although he has already hit 16 home runs (slugging .476) he’s hitting just .236 overall, and has been mostly a non-factor on defense. That said he is still a really athletic outfielder, who remains capable of making amazing plays. It’s just, sometimes he comes up short:

As you can see, Pederson clearly tracks this deep fly off the bat of Mark Reynolds with the intent of being a hero. He runs over to the wall, positions himself perfectly, leaps and POOF, his glove vanishes. And worse, on second viewing, the ball didn’t even knock the glove off his hand … he just dropped it.

Whoops. Go get ’em next time, Joc.
