VIDEO: Andrew McCutchen makes ranging, diving grab
Watch the reigning NL MVP cover some serious ground against the Mets.
Pirates center fielder and reigning NL MVP Andrew McCutchen is known primarily as a threat at the plate. However, as the following snare that he pulled off in the course of Tuesday night's game against the Mets (GameTracker) proves, he's also capable of some industry best practices in the field ...
The well-timed dive is just part of the excellence of this play, as McCutchen also covered some serious real estate in order to put himself in position for said dive.
On another level, 'Cutch's snare provides the Citi Field aesthete with some uplift after having been subjected to 50 Cent's "alligator throw."
