Brewers catcher Maldonado pitches in during loss to Cardinals

Putting a position player in to pitch is usually a last resort move for a manager, but desperate times call for desperate managers. The Milwaukee Brewers got what they couldn't afford Wednesday afternoon -- a short outing from starting pitcher Matt Garza. Two straight extra-inning games left an already taxed bullpen out of options. Down 9-3 in the eighth inning, Brewers manager...

Brewers Backup Catcher Martin Maldonado Hits Cover Off Of Baseball (GIF)

WATCH: Brewers Martin Maldonado tears the cover off the ball, literally

One of the oldest expressions in baseball is “TEAR THE COVER OFF THE BALL!”  The purist might think it originated in the 19th century when baseballs were literally sewn together to play.  More recently, you might invoke memories of The Natural, and Roy Hobbs doing as much in his debut at bat for the New York Knights.  Now, add Milwaukee Brewers Martin Maldonado to the lore...

Announcers like to say that guys “hit the cover off the ball” all the time, but how often is that literally what happened? Brewers backup catcher Martin Maldonado did just that against Charlie Morton and the Pirates.

Brewers Wednesday: Maldonado gets first start

MILWAUKEE -- Brewers manager Ron Roenicke is in a tricky but enviable spot when it comes to his catching situation. He must find a way to keep valuable backup Martin Maldonado in a groove, but starter Jonathan Lucroy is an integral part of Milwaukee's lineup.
