GIF: Brian McCann, Dean Anna both take silly falls due to McCann's mask

There was a fun little sequence of events on a pop-up during the fourth inning of Tuesday afternoon's Yankees-Nationals game. Here is the unexplained visual:

Did you see what happened there? Third baseman Dean Anna tripped over Brian McCann's mask after he tossed it away to follow the pop-up, then McCann flopped backwards over Anna. Both guys are fine, so feel free to laugh.

I'm pretty sure the last thing the Yankees wanted to see was their new $85 million catcher flop over the 39th or 40th man on the 40-man roster. If McCann had gotten hurt ... oh boy.
