Albert Pujols makes great barehanded play (GIF)


The Los Angeles Angels are taking on the Washington Nationals in an intriguing inter-league match-up to open the fourth week of MLB’s 2014 season. In a tight game, veteran first baseman Albert Pujols came out on the right side of a play involving him and another big name in young Bryce Harper.

With Harper on third, Pujols masterfully fielded a soft grounder barehanded and fired it home for the tag play.

Not to be overlooked on this play is the tag by catcher Chris Iannetta, who was blind to Harper upon catching the ball. To find him and make the tag is no easy task. Stopping this run was key as the Angels went on to win 4-1.
