Look, when the New York Mets do something good, even if it’s shady, you have to call attention to it. It’s not like that happens very often.
During Monday’s game against the Los Angeles Dodgers, Mets third baseman Todd Frazier tumbled into the stands to make an impressive catch on a foul ball. After diving into the stands, he emerged with the ball in hand. The ump called it as an out and then he quickly tossed the ball back into the stands.
Now we all know that Todd Frazier caught that foul ball, but what the Mets’ broadcasters started presupposing was, maybe he didn’t? Upon replay, they noticed that Frazier actually appeared to pull a fast one on third base umpire Mark Wegner. Turns out that while on the ground, Frazier actually grabbed a rubber baseball that had fallen onto the ground. Steve Gelbs of SportsNet New York took a closer look and figured it out.
