Sam Fuld makes great catch on Manny Machado, crashes into wall (Video)


 

Sam Fuld is one of those crazy, reckless guys who throws his body around like he just doesn’t give a crap about his personal safety.

After being let go by the A’s earlier in the year, Fuld has taken his flying circus to Minnesota, and he is putting on a show for Twins fans.

Friday night, Fuld went all-out, snagging a fly ball off the bat of Manny Machado and crashing into the centerfield wall.

 

 

Watching Fuld go flying into the wall must have been unnerving for Twins manager Ron Gardenhire, a night after centerfielder Aaron Hicks suffered a concussion running into the same stretch of wall.

Gardenhire might want to sit his outfielders down and have a little discussion with them about self-preservation.

It’s great that you want to make every play, but sometimes you need to dial it back a notch and not kill yourself.

Good luck imparting that lesson to Sam Fuld. He pretty much only knows one way to play. With the suicidal glee of a wall-smacking maniac.
