Yesterday, Twins’ backup backup middle fielder Rob Refsnyder gave us a blooper that ought to play in stadiums throughout American ballparks by… [checks date] tonight.
The 30-year-old utilityman, who often performs the infield, is seen right here monitoring a fly ball into deep middle subject and operating on the warning monitor as if it by no means ends.
Ouch. Fortunately he wasn’t injured on the play.
In a while within the sport, Refsnyder would really assist the woeful Twins beat a good worse Orioles group by scoring a run within the prime of the tennth. However each spotlight (or, on this case, lowlight) in Baltimore got here from this play.
It’s a terrific blooper, positive. And, sure, I did watch the clip over ten occasions in the present day — and possibly too many occasions whereas scripting this story. However should you’re studying this, you in all probability received caught in that viral loop, too.
However now, the Camden Yards crew is taking the trolling to a different degree. This afternoon, a member of the Baltimore Orioles grounds crew posted a photograph that outlined Refsnyder’s physique and jersey on the website of yesterday’s crash scene.
If a physique sketch on a baseball diamond rings a bell, it ought to. A number of weeks in the past, Joey Gallo slipped and crawled again over to first base in a sport in opposition to the Yankees. The following day, his Ranger teammates hilariously mocked him with a crime scene to “examine” the spill.
Hopefully the Baltimore groundskeepers preserve the tape up for tonight’s sport.
