I can honestly say I’ve never, ever seen this before. Bare-handing a base hit to the outfield? Crazy. Just crazy. But awesome! You go Gerardo Parra, you go and make crazy/reckless plays in the outfield for my entertainment.

Also crazy and fun to think about: how long would Kirk Gibson bench Parra if this play somehow went sideways? If he couldn’t corral the hop and it rolled to the wall? Or if he jammed his finger and had to miss time? Ole Gibby would run him out of town on a rail, of this I am sure.

  1. He threw out noted base-running speed-demon Chad Gaudin.

    Good for him for knowing who was on, I guess.

  2. Must have played cricket as a kid. None of this glove pussyness.

  3. Wow. Parra didn’t need to barehand the ball to make that play and Gaudin apparently forgot how to slide. This is the worst-looking awesome play I’ve seen in recent memory.
