While attending Saturday's Arizona Diamondbacks game, a ground rule double hit by D-backs outfielder Gerardo Parra was snagged behind the outfield wall by none other than former NBA star Dan Majerle.
Majerle was enjoying a barbecue and holding a plate of food with his left hand when the ball came his way, but he was able to grab the ball with his right hand without dropping any food. Majerle appeared to be as surprised as anyone when he caught the ball, and he got to watch himself live on a nearby television screen. Talk about being in the right place at the right time.

The Arizona Diamondbacks held one of the stranger giveaways of the season on Saturday. In honor of heavily-tattooed infielder Ryan Roberts, the team gave away tattoo sleeves (seen above) to the first 20,000 fans in attendance.
Roberts had a career season for the D-Backs last year, bashing a career-high 19 home runs with 65 RBIs. He began being called “Tatman” because of all...
PHOENIX -- Add left-hander Patrick Corbin to the Diamondbacks' list of rookie Giant killers.
First came Paul Goldschmidt, a major contributor in 2011 when the D-backs held off San Francisco down the stretch to win the NL West title -- and a major contributor to the 5-1 victory at Chase Field on Friday with three hits and another home run.
And now Corbin, whose first home start...
PHOENIX A glass-half-full guy might conclude that the Diamondbacks are in an OK place right now because they are conforming to their 2011 pace.
Manager Kirk Gibson is not willing to go that far, even if the D-backs' 15-20 record resembles their 15-22 start last season.
But that is about where the similarity ends, he said.
"We are not playing good baseball," Gibson...
Matt Kartozian - US PRESSWIRETimes have been tough lately for the Arizona Diamondbacks.
The Diamondbacks burst through the game with a strong 7-3 start. Then they lost Chris Young, their best player, to a shoulder injury. Now they’re 15-20 and in third place behind San Francisco and Los Angeles.
The Los Angels Dodgers are reinvigorated due to their new “magical” ownership and...
Although he doesn't have many wins to show for it, Barry Zito is off to one of his best starts in his six seasons with the San Francisco Giants.
His next outing, though, will come at a park where he hasn't had much success recently.
Zito seeks his first victory in more than a month Sunday when he faces the Arizona Diamondbacks and fellow left-hander Joe Saunders, who will...
PHOENIX (AP) -- Matt Cain gave up three hits in six innings and singled in a pair of runs to help the San Francisco Giants end a nine-game losing streak against Arizona with a 5-2 victory over the Diamondbacks on Saturday night.
Cain (2-2) allowed a run, struck out eight, walked two and hit a batter in his first victory in five outings. Trevor Cahill (2-4) took the loss as the Diamondbacks...
The Diamondbacks surprised everyone last year when they jumped in to claim the NL West. Looking back, we shouldn’t have been surprised at all. Hindsight is 20/20 after all. This year they were heavily favored, but have gotten off to a slow start. Is it really a slow start or is it something we should have predicted? Total run index can answer that question.
