Blue Jays’ Price calls Pillar’s home run — then catches it
You know how sometimes you’ll be watching a game and you’ll tell a friend, "He’s hitting a home run here." Then he does and you feel like Nostradamus himself?
That might be how Toronto’s David Price felt during Monday’s ALDS game, which the visiting Blue Jays won 8-4 to tie the series with the Texas Rangers at 2-2.
Earlier in the day, the left-hander told teammate Kevin Pillar to hit a home run to him since he’d be in the bullpen.
And Pillar did.
And Price caught it … all in the second inning.
"I told him before the game, hit me a ball in the bullpen so I can catch it," Price told reporters via Sportsnet. "I’m playing catch with (Marcus) Stroman and it was hit right to me, so that was pretty cool. I got it authenticated. I don’t know where it is right now, but that was pretty special."
Not sure what’s more impressive — Price calling the shot or Pillar fulfilling the prophecy. Either way, it was an incredible play all around.
