Tigers catcher James McCann channels his inner Spider Man with leaping catch

Tigers rookie catcher James McCann has definitely held his own both offensively and defensively while filling in for the injured Alex Avila. But on Wednesday night we saw McCann take his defensive efforts to the next level when he unleashed his super spidey sense.

Tigers catcher James McCann destroys bird with foul ball (VIDEO)

It was 14 years ago that Randy Johnson obliterated a bird with one of his 99 mph fastballs during an MLB spring training game. On Friday, Detroit Tigers rookie catcher James McCann did the same with one swing of the bat.  During the Tigers-Braves exhibition game yesterday, McCann launched a ball backwards over the backstop but, unfortunately, for the bird resting atop...

Notes: McCann wins catchers' olympics

LAKELAND, Fla. -- In addition to their usual activities Sunday, the Tigers also held a new competition -- the catchers' olympics. The winner was James McCann, who fittingly was wearing a Captain America shirt under his gear.
