New York Mets outfielder Johneshwy Fargas made a ridiculous snow cone catch during Saturday’s game against the Miami Marlins.
The New York Mets outfield has taken a hit as of late, particularly with the injuries to Michael Conforto and Kevin PIllar. In their absence, rookie Johneshwy Fargas made a statement on Saturday in the form of an impressive defensive play.
In the bottom of the ninth inning against the Miami Marlins, first baseman Jesus Aguilar hit a 95.8-mph fastball from Mets reliever Drew Smith to center field. With the ball about to hit the field, Fargas made a full extension dive to make the snow cone catch to prevent a man from reaching base.
Mets: Joneshwy Fargas’ snow cone catch vs. Marlins lone highlight of ninth inning
While the Fargas catch will make highlight reels for the next couple of days, things did not end well for the Mets. After a single by Miami third baseman Brian Anderson, outfielder Garrett Cooper launched a two-run home run to center field to give the Marlins the walk-off 3-1 win.
The victory would have been sweet, but Fargas will be receiving plenty of praise for his impressive catch in the outfield.
