Reds OF Chris Heisey left the field with a lost contact, made an amazing catch when he returned

Friday August 1st, 2014

Cincinnati Reds right fielder Chris Heisey caused some confusion when he ran off the field in the middle of the fourth inning of Thursday night's game against the Miami Marlins.

Also on Extra Mustard: David Price did not know when the trade deadline ended

Heisey didn't find out he was traded, but rather lost a contact and had to sprint back to the locker room to get another, and when he returned he used his freshly restored vision to make an impressive catch, preventing a run from scoring in a close game

It would have been even more impressive if he had made that catch before he replaced the contact though.
