I refuse to believe Desmond Jennings caught this ball. It has to be part of some CGI initiative Major League Baseball is trotting out to make the game more exciting. Or it’s part of a massive U.S. government cover-up you read about in those paperbacks for sale at airport kiosks.
The Tampa Bay Rays center fielder covered an extraordinary amount of ground before reaching out at the last moment and swiping his glove like it was a late-night Tinder session. Then, against all odds, he hung on as he crashed into the wall.
