Randy Winn gives Mark Reynolds an alley-oop homer

Jun 29, 2010, 4:15 PM EDT

What with the late start to the day due to the gremlins in the HBT engine, I neglected my usual morning practice of perusing video highlights from the previous night’s games, instead relying on the box scores.  As a result, I missed a nice one: Randy Winn giving the old alley-oop treatment to what should have been a warning track fly for Mark Reynolds, turning it into a home run.

Well, maybe not “nice,” especially for Randy Winn, but ever since Jose Canseco pulled that stuff with his noggin lo those many years ago, I have always gotten a chuckle out of those kinds of plays.

    I would love to know why that isn’t a 4-base error.

    That was my thought at the time. If this exact action occurred further from the wall so that the ball didn’t leave the park, they aren’t calling that a double….so how is this a HR?

    My guess is it was somewhat of a tough catch. If he didn’t knock it over the fence and it just fell to the ground, would they have called it an error? I don’t think they would, just judging by his body position on the jump.

    That picture is outstanding.

    By gremlin, do you mean scotch?
