VIDEO: Yadier Molina catches foul tip with thigh (no, really)
Cardinals all-world catcher Yadier Molina made a rather painful snag of a foul-tip strike three on Saturday.
The Cardinals fell to the Cubs 3-0 on Saturday, but Yadier Molina provided momentary uplift to his team by holding on to a foul-tip third strike. Contrary to catcher best practices, Molina did not secure the ball with his mitt. Rather -- at great personal discomfort -- he secured it with his thigh.
