WHAT A CATCH: Albert Almora Takes Away Extra Bases With a Beautiful Sliding Play (VIDEO)

Chicago Cubs

I’m not going to say that Jason Heyward would not have also made this catch. But I also can’t say I’m certain that he would have.

So, in that spirit, while I hope for a very good medical conclusion on whatever caused Heyward to depart tonight’s game, I will celebrate the fact that, because he happened to be in center field instead, Albert Almora was there to make a tremendous catch:

That’s just so much ground to cover and then gloving a tough one with the wall approaching. Beautifully, perfectly done. It even made Almora smile.
