Video: Alex Gordon dives into the stands to make the catch

5 Comments

Royals outfielder Alex Gordon made a terrific catch in the sixth inning of Sunday afternoon’s game against the White Sox. With the Royals leading 3-0, Edinson Volquez began the sixth facing Micah Johnson. Johnson was late on a 93 MPH fastball, sending a fly ball down the left field line into the stands. Gordon could have let the ball drop, but instead he caught the ball with a leap and his momentum took him into the crowd. One fan in a White Sox jersey appeared to have taken the brunt of Gordon’s damage.

Gordon was also helpful on the offensive side of things, slugging a two-run home run in the fourth inning off of John Danks, but the Royals weren’t able to generate much offense otherwise. They lost 5-3 to the White Sox.
