WATCH: Endy Chavez robs home run, reminiscent of 2006 NLCS Game 7
Seattle Mariners OF Endy Chavez is no stranger to home run robbing catches, but reminded us of his acumen Saturday Night against the Los Angeles Angels C Hank Conger. As if he’s done it many times, Chavez measures the drive and times his jump perfectly to pull the ball back (via MLB.com)
Did we say he’s done it many times? St. Louis Cardinals and New York Mets fans will remember his spectacular home run saving catch on Scott Rolen in Game 7 of the 2006 National League Championship Series when Chavez was a member of the Mets. Watch the catch (via MLB.com) that he turned into a double play in a critical juncture of the pivotal game.
The moral of the story is, if you hit it Chavez’ way, you better get it a few rows deep or else take your chances!
