When Your Catcher Doubles as a Gold Glove Infielder

Baseball Is Fun

Sometimes, amazing defensive plays come at just the right time.

In the bottom of the sixth inning yesterday, the San Francisco Giants trailed the Rockies by one run, but managed to get a runner to third base with two outs.

So when Brandon Crawford placed a swinging bunt perfectly down the first base line, you could almost hear the collectively groaning coming from the state of Colorado … that is until catcher Tony Wolters made an unbelievably impressive and athletic play:

I sure didn’t see that one coming.

That play wound up being especially important, because the Rockies managed to hang on to their one-run lead, beat a divisional rival, and remain in possession of first place in the NL West.

Not bat, Tony, not bad.
