Video: Avisail Garcia robs Chris Davis of a game-tying home run in the ninth inning

4 Comments

Avisail Garcia robbed baseball fans of potentially free baseball when he retrieved a Chris Davis home run ball from beyond the fence in right field during Saturday afternoon’s game against the Orioles. David Robertson was in to protect a 3-2 lead when, with one out, Davis smoked a 1-0, 92 MPH fastball for what appeared to be a game-tying homer, but Garcia had other ideas.

Play of the year candidate? You betcha.
