The Cleveland Indians hosted the Chicago White Sox over the weekend and ended up taking two of the three games. However, it seems that the best defensive play of the series came from an unexpected “fielder”.
During the bottom of the third, Nyjer Morgan, aka “Mr. Graceful” laid down a bunt, then was laid out buy his bat, and ended up rolling toward first base. It is unclear at this time if the bat was paid off by the White Sox, but given the fact that they have a less than stellar history when it comes to “fixes”, it can’t be ruled out.
Thanks to mlb.com for the video. Unfortunately, the bat was not available for a postgame comment.
