Minor League Baseball
Words cannot describe how mad pitching coach Buddy York is at the South Georgia Peanuts.

It’s not often you see a play that combines a comical blooper with highlight-worthy execution, but last night the Triple-A Nashville Sounds gave us just that. Center fielder Logan Schafer almost tracked the ball down, but it went off his glove…and then off his head, in a comical enough way that we think it might have made this sound while doing so. Incredibly, it bounced in such a way that Schafer was then able to make the catch (major credit him for sticking with the ball and reacting that quickly). And after that madness, throwing out the baserunners was the easy part. Laughs and smiles all around. Well, except for the Omaha Storm Chasers, the team the Sounds tripled up. [Big League Stew]
