Spring training games for the 2014 season officially kicked off on Wednesday and were highlighted by Josh Reddick of the Oakland Athletics robbing two would-be home runs off the bat of San Francisco Giants slugger, Michael Morse.
But despite the sensational play, it wasn’t Reddick who took home honors of most talked about player of the day – it was Cleveland Indians right fielder Carlos Moncrief.
So what did Moncrief do? Well, not much more than make a routine catch – though it was where the catch was made that intrigued people.
In a kitchen.
In a kitchen?
Yes, in a kitchen.
Thanks to a strategically placed advertisement on an outfield wall, Moncrief appeared to make a play in the well decorated kitchen and looked to be inches away from crashing into a set of wooden cabinets/kitchen window.
The catch, which came off the bat of Cincinnati Reds prospect Kristopher Negron, will certainly be one of the most memorable photos from the 2014 season and we’re still a month away from regular season action.
