Hank Conger is the backup catcher for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. The 25-year old Conger is having his finest season in the majors this year, hitting .259/.312/.466 in 45 games.
The Angels are playing the Mariners this weekend in Seattle, and of course, a trip to the Pike Place Market is in store. Conger took on the role of fish catcher today, and he caught one of the thrown fish...with his catcher's mitt. Seriously. Check out the below tweet from Fox Spors West reporter Jaime Maggio.

I really like when baseball players know how to have a good time. Hat's off to you, Hank.
