Catching a major league home run ball is a really tough thing to do. The ball is actually traveling faster going into the seats than it is coming at the hitter a lot of the time. This is why we so often see fans look like fools falling over and spilling their beers trying to catch them. Well, that and the fact that they are not professional athletes.
However, those that are professional athletes, even a pitcher, can make it look much easier, and that's exactly what Los Angeles Angels relief pitcher Aaron Slegers did on a Anthony Rendon home run ball Monday night.
Slegers nabbed the home run in his hat.
Doing it with a glove would have been a nice grab, but reeling it in with his hat is all the more impressive. Maybe if the pitching thing doesn't work out, he could give it a run at outfield.
