Minor Leaguer Makes Amazing Catch, Or Does He? [VIDEO]
We all love to see highlights of amazing catches and web gems that wind up on Sportscenter’s Top 10 list. At first glance the following video looks to be one of those kind of catches as Phillies Prospect Jiwan James playing for Double-A Reading takes away a Home Run.
But if you look really closely, it appears that the ball went over the wall. He loses his glove over the wall too and the ball magically appears in his hand. Did he have another baseball stashed away in his pocket? Is he baseball’s answer to David Copperfield? This is something that I just can’t explain. If he did have another baseball stashed away, I thought we only saw that kind of blatant cheating in Pro Wrestling! If he truly did cheat, this will give Bruce Jacobs more fodder to bash the Phillies.
