Play of the Day: Josh Hamilton robs Matt Dominguez of a home run

Say what you will about Josh Hamilton‘s production this year, and it will all be warranted. In the first year of a five-year, $125 million contract signed during the off-season, Hamilton has posted an uncharacteristic .659 OPS and has rated as one of baseball’s least-valuable players through the first three months of the season.

In the bottom of the seventh against the Astros this afternoon, though, he leaped for and snagged a Matt Dominguez fly ball that was destined for the seats in right field at Minute Maid Park. You have to give credit where credit is due on this fantastic play. Now if only he can get the bat in order.

    Fellow Astros fans. See the poor example set there? See the opportunity to slap Josh Hamilton in the face with your glove as he leaps in to your high dollar seats? Needless to say, that would have ended differently had I been there.

      You do realize those are the cheapest field level seats in the stadium right?

      Does “ended differently” mean that you would’ve been ejected and possibly had some sort of charges files against you (assault)? If so, I agree with you!

    Nice catch, Josh. But my fantasy team will still be in 10th place tomorrow.

    Did you quit the tobacco again like last year?

    Wow, Josh Hamilton involved in a play of the day??

    Shocking.

    Best part of that video is the kid with the Angels jersey going nuts when Hamilton made the catch.

    That catch was worth like 2 million dollars or something.
