Austin Hedges makes amazing diving catch, turns two
SAN DIEGO– Austin Hedges made one of the better plays of the young season on Thursday night.
With runners on first and third with one out, the Padres catcher made a diving play on a foul bunt by Gregor Blanco. He was not done there, though. From the seat of his pants, he fired a strike to first base to double off the runner to get San Diego out of the inning.
