What is this ballplayer doing in my kitchen?

Feb 27, 2014, 7:36 AM EDT

Sure, Josh Reddick’s two amazing catches yesterday are some of the best outfield defense you’ll ever see in your life. But it’s not like he had to dodge a kitchen counter and a bunch of chairs to do it, right?

Because that’s what Cleveland Indians outfielder Carlos Moncrief appeared to be doing in this catch at Goodyear Ballpark yesterday during the game against the Reds.

As the story at the Plain Dealer explains, he’s catching that ball in front of an ad for a home builder. Plain Dealer photographer Chuck Crow caught it just perfectly. As did Moncrief a second or two later.

(Thanks to Anthony Masterson for the heads up)

    What is this ballplayer doing in my kitchen? I would say he’s catching a can of corn, but it did not look like an easy catch.

    Good thing that wasn’t Delmon Young or he’d have missed the ball trying to open the refrigerator.

      … or Prince Fielder who would have tried to eat the frig.

        Why would Prince Fielder have been in the outfielder?

        And refrigerator shortened if fridge. Frig means something else.

    I wonder that doesn’t mess up your depth perception and ability to make a play there. It seems like it would be distracting/confusing out of the corner of your eye.

    Incredibly, one of the kids had left her skateboard by the table and Moncrief ended up in the living room.
