We’ve seen this happen plenty of times before, but it never fails to amuse me. Adeiny Hechavarria smacked a chopper back to the mound…and Mike Pelfrey couldn’t get the ball out of his glove. Naturally, he did what you’re taught to do – he threw the whole glove over to Joe Mauer at first base. I had no idea that Hechavarria could hit a ball that hard. He’s not exactly...
