Red Sox announcer fell out of his chair on the Andrew Benintendi catch

We already highlighted the greatness of the Andrew Benintendi catch which ended last night’s Game 4 between the Red Sox and the Astros. It was a stunning play. Both for Benintendi’s amazing athleticism and for the scouting, coaching and defensive positioning that went into making sure he was in a place where he could make that catch.

But Benintendi’s physical feat was not the only amazing one on the play. Someone else laid out physically on that play as well. It was WEEI radio announcer Joe Castiglione, who fell the heck right out of his chair while making the call.

Watch the play again because it’s a great play. But this time, listen too:

Red Sox center fielder Jackie Bradley Jr. scaled the center field fence to rob Padres shortstop Luis Urías of a solo home run in the fourth inning of Sunday afternoon’s game. Urías was trying to take advantage of a 0-1 slider from Ryan Brasier. Had Bradley not made the grab, the Padres’ lead would have been extended to 4-1.

Unfortunately for the Red Sox, they weren’t able to take advantage of Bradley’s effort, dropping Sunday’s contest 3-1. They still won the series against the Padres, however. The Sox will continue their road trip for two games against the Rockies followed by three versus the Angels.
