VIDEO: Ben Revere makes great catch, pays for it
Phillies center fielder Ben Revere robbed David Ortiz of extra bases Monday in Boston, but he also slammed into the wall. Watch it here.
Phillies center fielder Ben Revere may not be much in the batter's box, but he's one hell of a defender. Monday in Boston, he showed us all again just how much ground he can cover when he made an incredible catch in center to rob David Ortiz of extra bases.
Of course, Revere also sacrificed his body in the process:
Yeah, that's a metal garage at nearly full speed. I'm guessing that hurt. Fortunately Revere escaped without serious injury, though. Not only did he stay in the game for the duration, but he told reporters (Todd Zolecki) after the game his status is day to day and that X-rays on his left elbow were negative.
