Albert Almora Jr. Just Ran Into the Outfield Wall At Full Speed and Was Removed from the Game

Chicago Cubs

Even for us, a group of Cubs fans very familiar with Albert Almora Jr.’s typical 110% effort in the outfield (never with a regard for his own body), this was an exceptionally tough play to watch.

I really hope he is okay, because, man … that looked like it hurt.

Naturally, Albert Almora Jr. basically *made* that catch (it fell out of his glove, but he got it). But he stayed down on the field for a while thereafter and was removed from the game. I hope he’s okay, because that truly was about as hard as anyone I’ve ever seen hit the wall.

Evidently, he told the crowd that he’s “alright” on his way out.

Here’s Almora (in the past) discussing go all out for a catch, at the expense of his body/the wall.
