GIF: Jose Iglesias’ no-look catch thanks to the sun When your glove is as good as Jose Iglesias’, you don’t even need to look.  On Saturday against the White Sox, Iglesias battled the sun on a soft liner hit right at him.  At the last second, he had to look away.  He stuck up his glove and…happy birthday to him.  There’s nothing worse on the baseball field (injuries aside) than losing a ball in the sun. Sometimes it’s better...

Jose Iglesias on the Comeback Trail
