Although Jose Canseco was known for slugging home runs, it will be one of his defensive plays that everyone will remember him by.

On May 26, 1993, Canseco and the Texas Rangers were playing the Cleveland Indians when arguably the weirdest moment in MLB history took place. 

Indians infielder Carlos Martinez hit a fly ball to the warning track in right field, and it looked like Canseco was going to be able to make a play on it. Things took a crazy turn, however, when it came time for the outfielder to make the catch:

Not even Rangers teammate David Hulse could keep from laughing when the ball hit off of Canseco's head.

Twenty-one years later, Canseco reflected back on the play: 

The only thing he can do at this point is laugh at the bizarre home run.
