Pirates Minor Leaguer Reaches Way over Wall to Rob Opponent of Home Run

Kyle NewportFeatured ColumnistJuly 21, 2014

Center fielder Chase d'Arnaud of the Indianapolis Indians (Triple-A affiliate of the Pittsburgh Pirates) won't make a better catch in his career than the one he made at Huntington Park on Sunday.

In the bottom of the third inning, left fielder Matt Carson of the Columbus Clippers, the Cleveland Indians' Triple-A affiliate, hit a ball over the wall in left-center field. Unfortunately for Carson, he didn't hit it far enough over the wall.

With a well-timed leap, d'Arnaud was able to bring the ball back and rob Carson of a home run.

Not only did he have a great catch in the game, but d'Arnaud also went 2-for-4 at the plate. With help from d'Arnaud, Indianapolis rallied from a 4-0 deficit and pulled out a 7-5 victory.
