WATCH: Skip Schumaker makes home run saving catch

  • David Whitlock

Play of the day candidate, watch Los Angeles Dodgers LF Skip Schumaker track a deep fly ball and rob Pittsburgh Pirates C Russell Martin of what should have been a 3-run home run.  Video courtesy of

The catch kept the game at 3-1, whereas the Pirates would have surged to a 4-3 lead otherwise.  The game went to extras in which the Dodgers won 5-3, making it a game-saving play.  On the replay, he probably saved a lady’s face from a bad scene, as her man to her right was no help.

David Whitlock - manager

David (a.k.a. Longhorndave or lhd_on_sports) joined the staff late in the 2012 season and moved to Site Manager in early 2013. A lifelong Houston Astros fan (and mini-season ticket holder for 9 years) he attends 20+ games per year. A statistics freak, David still keeps score the "old fashioned way" on occasion (and has kept manual score of World Series games since 1986 and retains the sheets). He was a featured guest weekly on the Phil Naessens Show. He is also a Texas Longhorns alumnus and huge football and baseball fan of his alma mater. When he isn't watching or writing about baseball, he works as a contractor at NASA Johnson Space Center. He lives by the mantra "a bad day at the ballpark is better than a good day anywhere else."
