Harold Reynolds says Canadians can’t catch, Larry Walker disagrees
The Rangers-Blue Jays series moved to Texas on Sunday night and Fox Sports analyst Harold Reynolds feels that he has noticed a surge in athletic ability in the fans since returning to the United States.
The former player theorizes that the Blue Jays fans had a hard time grabbing foul balls because baseball is not as popular among the youth of Canada.
Former NL MVP and proud Canadian Larry Walker let his Twitter followers know that he felt pretty confident in his catching skills.
I won 7 gold gloves. I think part of winning them was cause I could catch. 😊— Larry Walker (@Cdnmooselips33) October 12, 2015
Non-Gold Glove winning Canadians were also unhappy with Reynolds comments, according to the Toronto Star.
I don't care what he says, Harold Reynolds is welcome in my igloo any time. The Mounties will come over and we'll watch beavers play hockey.— cathalkelly (@cathalkelly) October 12, 2015
The Blue Jays also represented Canada well in the game, winning 5-1 to extend the series with Texas.
