Play of the Day: J.B. Shuck robs Jose Bautista of a home run

30 Comments

In the top of the fourth with the Blue Jays leading 1-0, Jose Bautista hit Tommy Hanson’s 1-0 offering deep to left field with home run distance. Angels left fielder J.B. Shuck ranged back, timed his leap perfectly directly above the 330-foot marker, and snagged the ball just before falling into a sea of Angels fans behind the fence. Shuck completely disappeared from view of the camera before miraculously reappearing unscathed, with ball in tow.

Expect to see this on plenty of “best plays of the year” montages.

On Monday, the Brewers unveiled a familiar logo and new jerseys to help celebrate their 50th anniversary as a franchise. They kickstarted it with a video:

Then they showed various members of the club, including Ryan Braun and Keston Hiura, modeling their new uniforms, which featured the familiar ball-in-mitt logo.

The Brewers are not the only team to to back to a classic. The Padres are bringing back the brown as well. Two very good choices.
