The previous cliché says that each time you go to the ballpark, you will see one thing you have not seen earlier than. That was definitely true for the followers at Saturday’s Triple-A recreation between the Syracuse Mets and Buffalo Bisons.
Within the backside of the third, Buffalo pitcher Paxton Schultz threw a slider that went broad and ran inside over Syracuse first baseman Luke Voit. Voit tried to get out of the way in which, however the area was too far in for him to dodge. When he instinctively dropped his entrance elbow to guard his ribs, he truly caughtthe ball between the elbow and the torso.

What are the possibilities of that? Voit definitely wasn’t attempting to carry the ball towards his physique, however in some way he managed to do it completely.
And as nice as that was, and as a lot because it will need to have harm to be hit by an 83-mph pitch, Voit performed it off. He merely handed the ball to the catcher nonchalantly.
Voit is attempting to return to the large leagues after being launched by the Brewers in June. He is been crushing the ball for the highest Mets affiliate, with 9 house runs in 30 video games. However nothing he is achieved at Syracuse has been as cool as what he did on Saturday. Nicely possibly apart from carrying a tank prime.
