The Toronto Blue Jays are in the thick of trying to make the postseason, and they are literally doing everything they can to stay alive in a tight pennant chase in the American League. This includes making outrageously ridiculous plays to keep World Series aspriations afloat — like catching your own glove to make an out.
It’s exactly how it sounds: Blue Jays right-hander Chad Jenkins saved what looked like a for sure base hit by Yankees outfielder Curtis Granderson but he made it look a lot harder than your usual line drive save.
Jenkins stuck his glove out when Granderson hit a screaming line drive back to him, only the line drive proceeded knock Jenkins glove off his hand. Instead of panicking, Jenkins kept his eye on his glove and caught it like a punt returner catching a punt. Jenkins, being the badass he was in that moment, capped all this off by casually walking off the mound as though nothing had happened — like he does it all the time and it’s just another day on the job.
The spectacularly awesome catch by Jenkins was the highlight of the night for the Blue Jays who promptly got drop kicked by the Yankees 11-4.
