Found July 08, 2013 on Reading Between The Seams:
credit frrole.com We’ve seen it time and time again when a little dribbler rolls up third base line and both the third baseman and catcher watching roll until it reaches foul territory.  Not this time.  Detroit Tigers catcher, Brayan Pena made a heads up play with the score tied at two in the eighth inning; while Cleveland Indians first baseman, Nick Swisher taught a lot of little leaguer a valuable lesson.  When you put the ball in play, RUN! Take a look Nick Swisher looks stunned and rightly so. This isn’t his first rodeo and when your team is chasing the division rivals every at-bat counts! Oh, by the way Cleveland ended up losing 4-2 in eleven innings. courtesy of blessyouboys Follow us on Twitter LeRoy McConnell III@kcmac38 Follow us on Twitter @rbts_baseball Part of the Sports Kings (@realsportskings) network   The post Nick Swisher gets tagged out after foul ball turns fair appeared first on Reading Between The Seams.
